THE FREENESS OF THE GOSPEL




How free and boundless is the grace
Of our redeeming God;
Extending to the Greek and Jew,
And men of every blood!


The mightiest king and meanest slave
May his rich mercy taste;
He calls the beggar and the price
Unto the gospel feast.


None are excluded thence, but those
Who do themselves exclude;
Welcome the learned and polite,
The ignorant and rude.


Come then, ye men of every name,
Of every rank and tongue;
What you are willing to receive,
To you it doth belong.


Come without money, without price,
The rich provision share;
Fear not that you will be refused,
For such are welcome here.
