Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and pow'r
i will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
o, there are ten thousand charms.
Come, ye thirsty, come and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance
Every grace that brings you nigh.
Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.
Come ye weary, heavy laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.

i've been singing this song all week... what an invitation.
