Come, Ye Sinners, Poor and Wretched

Rev. Joseph Hart, 1712-1768

Tune: GREENVILLE

 

1. COME, ye sinners, poor and wretched,     [ Come, ye sinners, poor and needy ]

     Weak and wounded, sick and sore,

Jesus ready stands to save you,

     Full of pity joined with power;     [ Full of pity, love, and power ]

He is able, He is able,

     He is willing; doubt no more;

He is able, 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, without money,

     Come to Jesus Christ and buy!

Without money, 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, this He gives you;

     ‘Tis the Spirit’s rising beam;

This He gives you, this He gives you;

     ‘Tis the Spirit’s rising beam.

 

4. Come, ye weary, heavy laden,

     Bruised and mangled by the fall;     [ Lost and ruined by the fall ]

If you tarry till you’re better,

     You will never come at all!

Not the righteous, not the righteous,

     Sinners Jesus came to call;

Not the righteous, not the righteous,

     Sinners Jesus came to call.

 

5. View Him grovelling in the garden;     [ Agonizing in the garden ]

     Lo! your Maker prostrate lies;

On the bloody tree behold Him;

     Hear Him cry, before He dies;

“It is finished!” “It is finished!”

     Sinner, will not this suffice?

“It is finished!” “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, none but Jesus,

     Can do helpless sinners good;

None but Jesus, none but Jesus,

     Can do helpless sinners good.

 

7. Saints and angels, joined in concert,

     Sing the praises of the Lamb;

While the blissful seats of heaven

     Sweetly echo with His name;

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

     Sinners here may sing the same;

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

     Sinners here may sing the same.
