Christ's Invitation to Sinners.
1 "COME hither, all ye weary souls,
And pride is restless as the wind.
My grace shall make the burden light.” 4 Jesus, we come at thy command;
With faith, and hope, and humble zeal,
Yet there is Room.
1 COME, sinner, to the gospel feast;
For there is room in Jesus' breast
2 There's room in God's eternal love
3 There's room within the church, redeemed
Room in the white-robed throng, convened,
4 There's room in heaven among the choir
5 There's room around thy Father's board

The Gospel adapted to give Peace and Rest. 1 PEACE, troubled soul, whose plaintive moan Hath taught the rocks the notes of woe; Cease thy complaint, suppress thy groan, And let thy tears forget to flow: Behold, the precious balm is found, To lull thy pain, to heal thy wound. 2 Come, freely come, by sin oppressed; Unburden here thy weighty load; Here find thy refuge and thy rest, And trust the mercy of thy God: Thy God's thy Saviour. glorious word! Forever love and praise the Lord.
Yet there is Room.
1 YE wretched, hungry, starving poor,
Where Mercy spreads her bounteous store
2 There Jesus stands with open arms;
3 0, come, and with his children taste
4 There, with united heart and voice, Before th' eternal throne,
Ten thousand thousand souls rejoice,
5 And yet ten thousand thousand more
Ye longing souls, the grace adore,
Rest for the weary Penitent. 1 COME, weary souls, with sin distressed, Come, and accept the promised rest; The Saviour's gracious call obey, And cast your gloomy fears away. 2 Oppressed with sin, a painful load, O, come and spread your woes abroad: Divine compassion, mighty love, 'Will all the painful load remove.
3 Here mercy's boundless ocean flows,
The hope thy gracious words impart;
The Gospel Trumpet.
1 LET every mortal ear attend,
2 Ho! all ye hungry, starving souls,
And vainly strive with earthly toys
3 Eternal Wisdom has prepared
And bids your longing appetites
4 Ho! ye that pant for living streams,
Here you may quench your raging thirst
5 The happy gates of gospel grace
The Saviour's Invitation.
1 THE Saviour calls; let every ear
2 For every thirsty, longing heart,
3 Ye sinners, come; 'tis mercy's voice;
4 Dear Saviour, draw reluctant hearts;
And take the bliss thy love imparts,
All Things ready.
1 THE King of heaven his table spreads,
Not Paradise, with all its joys,
2 Ye hungry poor, that long have strayed
3 Millions of souls, in glory now,
4 Yet are his house and heart so large,
5 All things are ready; come away,
1 COME, let us join our souls to God
And seize the blessings he bestows
2 Come, let us to his temple haste,
3 Come, let us share, without delay,
4 O, may our children ever haste
Come and welcome.
