11.10.11.10.


1
COME! for the Father speaks to thee from heaven,
In Jesus' death His heart of love was told;
Since He His only Son for thee has given,
His bounteous hand no blessing would withhold.
2
Come! for the Saviour speaks, in grace appealing,
He waits to pardon, and to cleanse thy soul;
His precious blood alone can give thee healing,
Can wash thee from thy sins and make thee whole.
3
Come! for the Spirit speaks of Christ in glory;
In tender patience still He waits on thee.
Hark to His voice, and heed the wonderous story
Of full salvation, measureless and free.
4
Come now in faith, by God Himself invited!
He longs thy heart with heav'nly joys to fill;
For He, though oft His goodness thou hast slighted,
In grace and love unwearied seeks thee still.
5
To Jesus come, and as thy Saviour own Him,
To Him confessing all thy guilt and woe;
As Lord and Master in thy heart enthrone Him,
Life everlasting, peace and joy to know.

G.H. Brown
