Hymn/Song Information

O come to the merciful Saviour Who calls




Oh! come to the merciful Savior
Who calls you,
Oh! come to the Lord
Who forgives and forgets;
Though dark be the fortune
on earth that befalls you,
There’s a bright home above,
where the sun never sets.


Oh! come then to Jesus,
Whose arms are extended
To fold His dear children
in closest embrace;
Oh! come, for your exile
will shortly be ended,
And Jesus will show you
His beautiful face.


Yes, come to the Savior,
Whose mercy grows brighter
The longer you look
at the depth of His love;
And fear not! ’tis Jesus!
and life’s cares grow lighter
As you think of the home
and the glory above.


Have you sinned as none else
in the world have before you?
Are you blacker than
all other creatures in guilt?
Oh, fear not, and doubt not!
the mother who bore you
Loves you less than the Savior
Whose blood you have spilt!


Come, come to His feet,
and lay open your story
Of suffering and sorrow,
of guilt and of shame;
For the pardon of sin is
the crown of His glory,
And the joy of our Lord
to be true to His Name.
