COME, sinners, to the gospel feast,

By A Collection of Hymns

      L.M. Luke xiv. 16 - 24.
      1 COME, sinners, to the gospel feast,
      Let every soul be Jesu's guest;
      Ye need not one be left behind,
      For God hath bidden all mankind.

      2 Sent by my Lord, on you I call,
      The invitation is to ALL:
      Come, all the world; come, sinner, thou!
      All things in Christ are ready now.

      3 Come, all ye souls by sin opprest,
      Ye restless wanderers after rest,
      Ye poor, and maimed, and halt, and blind,
      In Christ a hearty welcome find.

      4 Come, and partake the gospel feast;
      Be saved from sin; in Jesus rest;
      O taste the goodness of your God,
      And eat his flesh, and drink his blood!

      5 Ye vagrant souls, on you I call;
      (O that my voice could reach you all!)
      Ye all may now be justified,
      Ye all may live, for Christ hath died.

      6 My message as from God receive,
      Ye all may come to Christ, and live;
      O let his love your hearts constrain,
      Nor suffer him to die in vain!

      7 His love is mighty to compel;
      His conquering love consent to feel,
      Yield to his love's resistless power,
      And fight against your God no more.

      8 See him set forth before your eyes,
      That precious, bleeding sacrifice!
      His offered benefits embrace,
      And freely now be saved by grace.

      9 This is the time; no more delay!
      This is the acceptable day,
      Come in, this moment, at his call,
      And live for him who died for all.
