Invitation to Sinners. 1 SINNERS, hear the Saviour's call,
He now is passing by ;
And heard thy mournful cry.
And wipe away thy tears. 2 Why art thou afraid to come
And tell him all thy case?
Nor frown thee from His face.
Has shed His precious blood ?
Pierc'd with a thousand wounds!
The voice of pardon sounds!
And ransom thee from woe. 4 Raise thy downcast eyes and see
What throngs His throne surround ! These, though sinners once like thee,
Have full salvation found. Yield not then to unbelief, While He
says, “There yet is room !" Though of sipners thou art chief,
Since Jesus calls thee, come.
Hymn. Invitation to the Wretched and Undone. 1 Come, ye sinners, come and welcome;
God's free bounty glorify: True belief, and true repentance, Ev'ry grace that brings us nigh
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
This He gives you ;
Lost and ruin'd by the fall:
Not the righteous,
On the ground your Maker lies :
“It is finish'd :"-
Pleads the merit of His blood:
None but JESUS
6 Saints and angels, join'd in concert,
Sing the praises of the LAMB;
Invitation by God's Ambassadors.
i GOD, th' offended God Most High,
Ambassadors to rebels sends ;
And Jesus begs us to be friends.
2 Us, in the stead of CHRIST, they pray,
Us, in the stead of God, entreat, To cast our arms, our sins away,
And find forgiveness at His feet.
3 Our God in CHRIST, thine embassy,
And proffer'd mercy we embrace; And gladly reconcild to Thee,
Thy condescending mercy praise.
4 Poor debtors, by our LORD's request,
A full acquittance we receive! And criminals with pardon blest, We at our Judge's instance live.
Invitation to those who are weary of Sin.
1 COME, ye weary sinners, come,
load; JESUS calls His wand'rers home:
Hasten to your pard'ning God. 2 Come, ye guilty spirits, oppress'd,
Answer to the SAVIOUR's call: “ Come, and I will give you rest;
“Come, and I will save you all.”
3 Jesus, full of truth and love,
We Thy kindest Word obey :
Take our load of guilt away:
4 Fain we would on Thee rely,
Cast on Thee our ev'ry care,
Find our lasting quiet there.
Burthen'd with our sinful load,
Burthen'd with the wrath of God:
6 Lo! we come to Thee for ease,
True and gracious as Thou art; Now our groaning souls release,
Write forgiveness on our heart.
The Friend and Saviour of mankind !
But may in Him salvation find!
His life, and death,– that God is love! 2 See, where the God incarnate stands,
And calls His wand'ring creatures home;
Come, weary souls, to Jesus come!
Believe, and He will give you rest.
Groaning beneath your load of sin; His bleeding heart shall make you room; His open side shall take
you He calls you now, invites you home;
Come, O my guilty brethren, come. 4 For you the purple current flow'd,
In pardons from His wounded side ; Languish'd for you the Son of God;
For you the PRINCE of Glory died : Believe,- and all
sin's forgiv'n; Only believe, and your's is heav'n. 5 Sinners, believe the Gospel-word;
Jesus is come your souls to save! Jesus is come, your common LORD; Pardon
ye all through Him may have; May now be sav'd, whoever will: This man receiveth sinners still,
