COME, all you mourning souls, and hear
The joyful news we tell;
The Lord has brought salvation down
To save our souls from hell.
The angels sung the tidings glad,
To shepherds in the field;
"Good will to men and peace on earth-
The Saviour is revealed."
Come all you poor despairing souls
Now to the fold repair;
Here God his boundless love unfolds,
And says he'll meet you here.
His glorious presence fills our souls
With songs of loudest praise;
You shall his Holy Spirit taste,
If you will keep his ways.
Here's peace and glory to your souls,
It comes from heaven above;
Enkindling all the inward man,
With highest heavenly love.
Then serve the bleeding Lamb of God,
Approve his ways full well:
For know his precious blood was shed
To save your souls from hell.
Salvation, what a glorious plan!
How suited to our need!
The grace that raises fallen man,
Is wonderful indeed.
'Twas wisdom formed the vast design,
To ransom us when lost,
And love's unfathomable mine
Provided all the cost.
