Come, Poor Sinner – Hymn

0

O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Lay on Him your weary soul;
He will give you peace and pardon,
Purify and make you whole.

Refrain:
Gently now the Spirit’s whisp’ring,
Wooing, calling you today;
Don’t you hear Him softly saying,
Urging, pleading, ‘Don’t delay’?

O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Now He speaks so tenderly,
‘Come to Me, for you I’ve suffered,
Bled and died on Calvary.’

O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Lay your heart at His dear feet;
He will fold you in His bosom,
And will make your rest complete.

O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Time is fleeting swiftly by;
Still the loving Savior’s calling,
Come, oh, come, why will you die?

O poor sinner, come to Jesus,
Hasten, come, before too late;
Lest the Spirit cease His wooing;
Sad, then, sad will be your fate.

The earliest publication in 1893 attributes the words to Luella E. Byers. But later sources attribute C. Z. Lindley, with a date of 1889.
