1 All ye that pass by,
To Jesus draw nigh,
To you it is nothing that Jesus should die?
2 Your ransom and peace,
Your surety he is;
Come see if there ever was sorrow like his.
3 For what you have done,
His blood doth atone;
The Father hath punished for you his dear Son.
4 The Lord in the day
Of anger did lay
Your sins on the Lamb, and he bore them away.
5 He answered for all;
Oh, come, at his call,
And low at his cross with astonishment fall.
6 For you, and for me,
He prayed on the tree;
The prayer is accepted, the sinner is free.
7 That sinner am I,
Who on Christ rely,
And come for the pardon God will not deny.
8 My pardon I claim,
A sinner I am,
A sinner believing in Jesus's name.
9 He gives me the grace,
Which now I embrace;
Oh, Father, thou knowest he died in my place.
10 His death is my plea,
My Advocate see,
And hear the blood speak that hath answered for me.
11 Acquitted I was
By's Death on the Cross;
And losing his Life, he hath carry'd my Cause.
The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
All ye that pass by. C. Wesley. [Invitation.] This “Invitation to Sinners " appeared in the Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1741), vol. i., No. xlii., in 7 stanzas of 6 lines. In 1760 it was included, with the omission of st. iv., in M. Madan's Psalms & Hymns, No. xxi.; again in the collections of De Courcy, B. Conyers, and others in the Church of England; Williams and Boden, and others amongst the Congregationalists; and in the collections of various denominations: but not until the publication of the Supplement to the Wesleyan Hymn Book in 1830 was it added to that work, and thereby officially recognised by the Wesleyan Conference. It is retained in the revised ed. of the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1875, and is in extensive use in Great Britain and America. Original text in Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. iv. p. 371.
