818. Come, Poor Sinner

1 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Lay on Him your weary soul;
He will give you peace and pardon,
Purify and make you whole.

Refrain:
Gently now the Spirit’s whisp’ring,
Wooing, calling you today;
Don’t you hear Him softly saying,
Urging, pleading, “Don’t delay”?

2 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Now He speaks so tenderly,
“Come to Me, for you I’ve suffered,
Bled and died on Calvary.” [Refrain]

3 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Lay your heart at His dear feet;
He will fold you in His bosom,
And will make your rest complete. [Refrain]

4 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Time is fleeting swiftly by;
Still the loving Savior’s calling,
Come, oh, come, why will you die? [Refrain]

5 O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Hasten, come, before too late;
Lest the Spirit cease His wooing;
Sad, then, sad will be your fate. [Refrain]
