O sinner, come to Jesus now,

Come taste re-deem-ing love;

Then, sinner, come to Jesus, come, 

Count all things else but loss.

The Ho-ly Spirit calls to you,

The voice of God a-bove.

What more could He have done for you,

Who died up-on the cross.

Come sinner, come cast far away

Your love of wealth and fame,

And seek by humble confidence

An interest in his name;

The name of Him who died for you,

Who ever lives on high,

To advocate the cause of those

Who, by His blood, draw nigh.

By faith, by true repentance, and

Confession, sinner, come,

Come, nothing doubting-linger not,

For yet there still is room;

Come make the promises your own

And from destruction flee;

Live godly in Christ Jesus, and

Be saved eternally.
