10563. Come To Jesus! Come Away

1 Come to Jesus! come away;
Forsake thy sins, oh, why delay?
His arms are open night and day,
He waits to welcome thee.

2 Come to Jesus! sin no more,
But on thy bended knees implore,
And knock in faith at mercy’s door,
He’s sure to welcome thee.

3 Come to Jesus! lift an eye:
There’s prayer in every contrite sigh
And every groan, for God is nigh,
He’ll bow His ear to thee.

4 Come to Jesus! all is free
Hark! how He calls, Come unto Me!
I cast none out, I’ll pardon thee.
Oh, thou shalt welcome be.

5 Come to Jesus! cling to Him,
He’ll keep thee far from paths of sin,
Thou shalt at last the victory win;
And He will welcome thee.

6 Come to Jesus! do not stand,
The Father draws—’tis His command,
And none shall pluck thee from His hand,
No—that can never be.

7 Come to Jesus! Lord, I come;
Weary of sin, no more I’d roam,
But with my Savior be at home;
I know He’ll welcome me.
