8, 7, 4

Wm. Walker

Baptist Harmony, p. 249


Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,

Weak and wounded, sick and sore;

Jesus ready stands to save you,

Full of pity, love, and power:

He is able,

He is willing: doubt no more.


Ho! ye thirsty, come and welcome;

God's free bounty glorify;

True belief and true repentance,

Every grace that brings us nigh,

Without money,

Come to Jesus Christ and buy.


Let not conscience make you linger,

Nor of fitness fondly dream;

All the fitness he requireth

Is to feel your need of him:

This he gives you;

'Tis the Spirit's rising beam.


Come, ye weary heavy laden,

Lost and ruined by the fall;

If you tarry till you're better,

You will never come at all;

Not the righteous,

Sinners Jesus came to call.


View him prostrate in the garden,

On the ground your Savior lies;

On the bloody tree behold him!

Hear him cry before he dies,

"It is finished!"

Sinners, will not this suffice?


Lo! the incarnate God ascending,

Pleads the merit of his blood;

Venture on him, venture wholly,

Let no other trust intrude:

None but Jesus

Can do helpless sinners good.


Saints and angels, joined in concert,

Sing the praises of the Lamb;

While the blissful seats of heaven

Sweetly echo with his name.


Sinners here may sing the same.
