8.7.4.

1
Come ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore:
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, joined with power:
He is able,
He is willing, doubt no more.

2
Ho! ye needy, come and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify:
True belief and true repentance
Every grace that brings us nigh –
Without money
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.

3
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.

4
Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall,
If you tarry till you’re better
You will never come at all!
Not the righteous –
Sinners Jesus came to call.

5
View Him grovelling in the garden,
Lo! your Maker prostrate lies;
On the rugged tree behold Him,
Hear Him cry before He dies,
“It is finished!”
Sinner, will not this suffice?

6
Lo! the incarnate God ascended,
Pleads the merits of His blood;
Venture on Him, venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude;
None but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good.
