Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and power.
He is able, He is able,
He is willing, doubt no more.

Now, ye needy, come and welcome;
Godís free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Evíry grace that brings you nigh;
Without money, without money,
Come to Jesus Christ and buy

Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel our need of Him.
This He gives you, this He gives you,
íTis the Spiritís glimmering beam.
