Come, Friends, Go With Me 206

Tune: Southern and Western Pocket Harmonist, 1846
Alto: Karen Willard, 2011
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1709
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Alas! and did my Savior bleed,
And did my Sov’reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I.


I want my friends to go with me,
To the New Jerusalem;
I wonder, Lord, shall I ever get to heaven,
To the New Jerusalem.

Was it for crimes that I had done,
He groaned upon the tree,
Amazing pity, grace unknown,
And love beyond degree.


But drops of grief can ne’er repay,
The debt of love I owe,
Here Lord, I give myself to Thee,
’Tis all that I can do.
