1. Oh, come, sinner, come! ’tis mercy’s call;
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Oh come, and, repenting, lay thy all
Down at Jesus’ feet!

Refrain
Oh, lay it down! lay it down!
Lay thy weary burden down!
Oh, lay it down! lay it down,
Down at Jesus’ feet!

2. Oh come, and, believing, seek thy rest
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Thy heart, with its heavy weight oppressed,
Lay at Jesus’ feet! [Refrain]

3. Oh come, where thy faith can make thee whole,
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Oh come, and thy weary, troubled soul
Lay at Jesus’ feet! [Refrain]

4. Oh come! bless the Lord, there’s room for thee,
Here at Jesus’ feet!
Thy burden of guilt, whate’er it be,
Lay at Jesus feet! [Refrain]
