“My yoke, and bear it with delight;
“My yoke is easy to his neck,
“My grace shall make the burden light.”

With faith, and hope, and humble zeal;
Resign our spirits to thy hand,

117. Sinners Invited to Christ. 8,7,4,

1 Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Lost and ruin’d by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at als:
Not the righteous—
Sinners Jesus came to call.

2 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.
3 Agonizing in the garden,
Lo! your Maker prostrate lies!
On the bloody tree behold him;
Hear him cry, before he dies, -

1 Return and come to God;
Cast all your sins away;
Seek ye the Saviour's cleansing blood;
Repent, believe, obey.
2 Say not ye cannot come—
For Jesus bled, and died,
That none who ask in humble faith
Should ever be denied.
3 Say not ye will not come—
'Tis God vouchsafes to call,
And fearful shall their end be found,
On whom his wrath shall fall.
4 Come then, whoever will,
Come while ’tis called to-day;
Flee to the Saviour's cleansing blood;
Repent, believe, obey. Bp. Doane.

1 Behold a stranger at the door!
He gently knocks, has knock'd before;
Has waited long—is waiting still:
You treat no other friend so ill.

With melting heart and loaded hands'
Oh, matchless kindness! and he shows
This matchless kindness to his foes;
