Hymn/Song Information

Welcome welcome sinner hear hang not




Welcome, welcome! sinner, hear!
Hang not back through shame or fear;
Doubt not, nor distrust the call,
Mercy is proclaimed to all.


Welcome to the offered peace;
Welcome, prisoner, to release!
Burst thy bonds; be saved; be free!
Rise and come—He calleth thee.


Welcome, weeping penitent!
Grace hath made thy heart relent;
Welcome, long estrangèd child!
God in Christ is reconciled.


Welcome to the cleansing fount
Springing from the sacred mount;
Welcome to the feast divine,
Bread of life and living wine.


All ye weary and distressed,
Welcome to relief and rest:
All is ready; hear the call:
There is ample room for all.


None can come that shall not find
Mercy called whom Grace inclined;
Nor shall any willing heart
Hear the bitter word—Depart!


O the virtue of that price,
That redeeming sacrifice!
Come, ye bought, but not with gold;
Welcome to the sacred fold.
