Come, Humble Sinner (Fairfield) 29t

Tune: Hitchcock, 1791
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Edmund Jones, 1787
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Come, humble sinner, in whose breast
A thousand thoughts revolve,
Come with your guilt and fear oppressed
And make this last resolve.

Iíll go to Jesus, though my sin,
Hath like a mountain rose,
I know His courts, Iíll enter in,
Whatever may oppose.

I can but perish if I go,
I am resolved to try,
For if I stay away I know,
I must forever die.
