1 Come to Jesus, ye who wander
Far from hope, and peace, and rest;
Scorned, neglected, and forsaken,
Sorrowful, and sore distressed.
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus,
Ye of fear and sin oppressed.

2 Come to Jesus, y who never
Listened to his word before;
Hear his loving invitation
Sweetly sounding o'er and o'er;
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus,
And behold your sins no more.

3 Come to Jesus! He hath love you
With a deep, abounding love;
And His heart of tend’rest pity
Needs no sacrifice to move.
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus,
And his free salvation prove.

4 Come to Jesus, Canaan's country
Is the pilgrim's happy home;
Linger not in Egypt's bondage,
Sharon of the sinner's doom;
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus,
Hark! the Spirit whispers, come.

5 Come! Oh come! The Master waiteth:
Come! the longing Bride doth say:
Come! He tarries whilst we linger;
He hath borne our sins away.
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus,
Come, the Spirit cries, today.
