JESUS, thy blessings are not few,
Nor is thy gospel weak;
Thy grace can melt the stubborn Jew,
And heal the dying Greek.

Wide as the reach of Satan's rage
Does thy salvation flow:
'Tis not confined to sex nor age,
The lofty nor the low.

While grace is offered to the prince,
The poor may take his share;
No mortal has a just pretense
To perish in despair.

Come, all you rebel sinners, come,
He'll form your soul's anew;
His gospel and his heart have room
For rebels such as you.

His doctrine is almighty love,
There's virtue in his name,
To turn a raven to a dove,
A lion to a lamb.

Come, then, accept the offered grace,
And make no more delay;
His pardon will your guilt efface,
And wash your sins away.
