1 There are some rays of hope divine,
To cheer the darkest heart;
Around the cross they ever shine,
Where life anew may start.

Refrain:
Heaven is free, heaven is free,
Sinner, believe, in heaven you may shine;
Come and be free, come and be free;
Wonderful love, that heaven may be thine.

2 Despondent soul, can you not see
Hope gleaming from above?
Oh, look once more to Calvary,
And know that God is love. [Refrain]

3 Though shame and guilt oppress thy soul,
Thy heart as adamant,
Yet Jesus will thy name enroll,
If thou wilt but repent. [Refrain]

4 Thy life of sin now weighs thee down,
And death and hell are near;
But heaven wills thee yet a crown,
And angels want thee there. [Refrain]

5 O guilty one, though bound in chains
Of dark infernal pow’r,
The grace of God supremely reigns
To save thee in this hour. [Refrain]
