And the scars upon His brow ;

Our Redeemer, Lord, and Saviour,

In the glory standeth now.

In the clouds will come again ;

And with Him His blood-bought

people

Evermore shall live and reign.

And happy are they that believe.

Where we shall behold our Redeemer,

And dwell in the smile of His love.

SS & S 372  There is a gate that stands ajar

There is a gate that stands ajar,

And through its portals gleaming

A radiance from the cross afar,

The Saviour’s love revealing.

 

Oh, depth of mercy ! can it be

That gate was left ajar for me,

For me, . . for me ? . .

Was left ajar for me ?

 

2

That gate ajar stands free for all

Who seek through it salvation ;

The rich and poor, the great and small

Of every tribe and nation.

 

3

Press onward, then, though foes may frown,

While mercy’s gate is open ;

Accept the cross, and win the crown,

Love’s everlasting token.

 

4

Beyond the river’s brink we’ll lay

The cross that here is given,

And bear the crown of life away,

And love Him more in heaven.

 



 

SS & S 373  Back from the weary wandering

Back from the weary wandering

Into the narrow way ;

Jesus is tenderly calling,

Calling the sheep that stray.

 

Still, still Jesus is calling :

Hear, oh hear Him say :

” Weary, heavy laden,

Come, come to-day ! ”

 

2

Out of the dreary desert

Into the pastures green,

Out of the land of darkness

Into the light serene.

 

3

Why should we longer tarry,

Why should we longer roam

Far from the place of refuge,

Far from the sheltering home ?

 

4

Come, for the hours are waning ;

Come from the mountains cold ;

Come from the storm and tempest

Into the Shepherd’s fold !

 

SS & S 374  Come unto Me, ye weary

” Come unto Me, ye weary,

And I will give you rest.”

Oh, blessed voice of Jesus,

Which comes to hearts opprest !

It tells of benediction ;

Of pardon, grace, and peace ;

Of joy that hath no ending;

Of love which cannot cease.

 

2

” Come unto Me, ye wanderers,

And I will give you light.”

Oh, loving voice of Jesus,

Which comes to cheer the night !

Our hearts were filled with sadness,

And we had lost our way;

But. He has brought us gladness,

And songs at break of day.

 

3

” Come unto Me, ye fainting,

And I will give you life.”

Oh, cheering voice of Jesus,

Which comes to aid our strife :

The foe is stem and eager,

The fight is fierce and long,

But He has made us mighty,

And stronger than the strong.

 

4

” And whosoever cometh

I will not cast him out.”

Oh, welcome voice of Jesus,

Which drives away our doubt :

Which calls us—- very sinners,

Unworthy though we be

Of love so free and boundless—-

To come, dear Lord, to Thee !

God’s free bounty glorify :

True belief and true repentance—-

Every grace that brings you nigh—–

Nor of fitness fondly dream ;

All the fitness He requireth

This He gives you—–

‘Tis the Spirit’s rising beam.

 

4

Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,

Bruised and ruined by the Fall ;

You will never come at all :

Not the righteous—-

Sinners, Jesus came to call.

 



 

SS & S 377  Step over the threshold, and wander no more

Step over the threshold, and wander no more,

Oppressed with the burden of sin ;

Step over the threshold : why stand at the door ?

Come in, there is mercy for thee.

To Him, thy Physician so kind ;

And hear Me pleading evermore,

With gentle voice : Oh, heart of sin,

May I come in ? may I come in ?

I waited long and patiently :

Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin.

May I come in ? may I come in ?

I would not plead with thee in vain ;

Remember all My grief and pain !

I died to ransom thee from sin :

May I come in ? may I come in ?

Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,

May I come in ? may I come in ?

Jesus for your choice is waiting;

Tarry not : at once decide !

While the Spirit now is striving,

Yield, and seek the Saviour’s side.

His Gospel to proclaim.

 



 

SS & S 383  O wandering souls, why will you roam

O wandering souls, why will you roam

Away from God, away from Home ?

The Saviour calls, oh, hear Him say—-

“ Whoever will ” may come to-day !

 

” Whoever will ! “” whoever will ! ”

” Whoever will ” may come to-day ;

” Whoever will ” may come to-day,

And drink of the water of life.

 

2

Behold His hands extended now,

The dews of night are on His brow ;

He knocks, He calls, He waiteth still :

Oh, come to Him, ” whoever will ! ”

 

3

In simple faith His word believe,

And His abundant grace receive ;

No love like His the heart can fill ;

Oh, come to Him, ” whoever will ! ”

 

4

The ” Spirit and the bride say,

Come ! ”

And find in Him sweet rest, and home ;

Let him that heareth echo still

The blessed ” Whosoever will ! ”

 

SS & S 384  O weary heart, why seek in vain

O weary heart, why seek in vain

The balm of rest from earth to gain,

While Jesus waits, your King to reign,

And all your sins forgive ?

 

Awake, arise ! no more delay ;

He calls you now—– His voice obey ;

The loving words He speaks to-day,

Oh hear, and you shall live !

His gift of grace through faith receive ;

Your truest Friend no longer grieve,

But haste your heart to give.

Oh, trust Him now, and learn how sweet

The peace His love will give.

” Look unto Me, and be ye saved ! ”

Oh, hear the blest command !

Salvation full, salvation free,

Proclaim o’er every land !

 

” Look unto Me, . . . and be ye saved, . . .

All ye ends of the earth ! . . .

For I am God ; . . . there is none else : . ..

Look unto me, and be ye saved.” . . .

 

2

” Look unto Me,” upon the cross,

O weary, burdened soul ;

‘Twas there on Me thy sins were laid—-

Believe, and be made whole !

 

3

” Look unto Me,” thy risen Lord,

In dark temptation’s hour ;

The needful grace I’ll freely give,

To keep from Satan’s power.

 

4

” Look unto Me,” and not within—–

No help is there for thee:

For pardon, peace, and all thy need,

Look only unto Me !

Full, full of love ;

Calling tenderly, calling lovingly,

” Come, O sinner, come i ”

 

2

Still He waits for thee, pleading patiently,

 

” Come, oh come, to Me ! ”

” Heavy-laden one, I thy grief have borne,

Come and rest in Me.”

Words with love o’erflowing,

Life and bliss bestowing !

 

3

Weary, sin-sick soul, called so graciously,

Canst thou dare refuse ?

Mercy offered thee, freely, tenderly,

Wilt thou still abuse ?

Come, for time is flying !

Haste, thy lamp is dying !

 



 

SS & S 387  Take the wings of the morning

Take the wings of the morning,

speed quickly thy flight

To Jesus, thy Saviour, thy hope,

and thy light !

The fount of His mercy is open for thee,

Go wash, and be cleansed in its

waters so free !

 

Fly away, fly away on the wings of the

morning !

Fly away, fly away, to thy Saviour and Friend !

 

2

Fly away to thy Saviour, He waits to forgive ;

One look of His love, and thy spirit shall live :

Thy faith will secure thee His blessing divine ;

Go plead thou His merit, and peace will be thine !

 

3

On the wings of the morning fly home

to His breast—-

There only thy refuge, there only thy rest :

The moments are precious, the noon-tide is near ;

Fly home to thy Saviour ! oh, linger not here !

 

SS & S 388  Come, oh, come, while Christ is calling

Come, oh, come, while Christ is calling

Linger not in paths of sin ;

Sever every tie that binds you,

And the heavenly race begin.

pleading ;

Oh, what love His tones convey !

Will you slight His proffered mercy,

Will you longer from Him stray ?

Come, oh, come, delay no longer,

For th’ accepted time is now ;

Yield, oh, yield yourself to Jesus,

And before His sceptre bow.

“Whosoever heareth ! ” shout, shout the sound !

Send the blessed tidings all the world around ;

Spread the joyful news wherever man is found,

” Whosoever will may come.”

Send the proclamation over vale and hill ;

‘Tis a loving Father calls the wanderer home :

” Whosoever will may come.”

Now the door is open, enter while you may ;

Jesus is the True, the only Living Way :

” Whosoever will may come.”

Pure before the law I stand ;

He who cleansed me from all spot,

Satisfied its last demand.

Even me with all my sin ;

Purged from every spot and stain,

Heaven with Him I enter in.

 



 

SS & S 391  Call them in —- the poor, the wretched

“Call them in ” —- the poor, the wretched,

Sin-stained wanderers from the fold ;

Peace and pardon freely offer ;

Can you weigh their worth with gold ?

“Call them in —–the weak, the weary,

Laden with the doom of sin ;

Bid them come and rest in Jesus ;

He is waiting—– ” Call them in.”

 

2

” Call them in ” —-the Jew, the Gentile ;

Bid the stranger to the feast ;

“Call them in ” —-the rich, the noble,

From the highest to the least :

Forth the Father runs to meet them,

He hath all their sorrows seen ;

Robe, and ring, and royal sandals,

Wait the lost ones—- ” Call them in.”

 

3

” Call them in ” —-the little children,

Tarrying far away . . . away ;

Wait —–oh, wait not for to-morrow,

Christ would have them come today.

Follow on ! the Lamb is leading !

He has conquered —–we shall win ;

Bring the halt and blind to Jesus ;

He will heal them— “Call them in.”

 

4

” Call them in “—– the broken-hearted,

Cowering ‘neath the brand of shame ;

Speak Love’s message, low and tender—–

‘Twas for sinners Jesus came :

See ! the shadows lengthen round us,

Soon the day-dawn will begin;

Can you leave them lost and lonely ?

Christ is coming—– ” Call them in.”

 

SS & S 392  Come, every soul by sin oppressed

Come, every soul by sin oppressed,

There’s mercy with the Lord ;

And He will surely give you rest

By trusting in His word.

 

Only trust Him! only trust Him

Only trust Him mow !

He will save you ! He will save you I

He will save you now I

 

2

For Jesus shed His precious blood

Rich blessings to bestow ;

Plunge now into the crimson flood

That washes white as snow.

 

3

Yes, Jesus is the Truth, the Way

That leads you into rest ;

Believe in Him without delay,

And you are fully blest.

Come then, and join this holy band,

And on to glory go,

To dwell in that celestial land

Where joys immortal flow.

 



 

SS & S 393  Praise be to Jesus, His mercy is free

Praise be to Jesus, His mercy is free :

Mercy is free, mercy is free !

Sinner, that mercy is flowing for thee—-

Mercy is boundless and free !

If thou art willing on Him to believe :

Mercy is free, mercy is free !

Life everlasting thou mayest receive :

Mercy is boundless and free !

 

Jesus, the Saviour, is seeking for thee,

Seeking for thee, seeking for thee ;

Lovingly, tenderly calling for thee,

Calling and seeking for thee !

Why on the mountains of sin wilt thou roam ?

Gently the Spirit is calling thee home :

Art thou in darkness ? oh, come to the light :

Jesus is waiting, He’ll save you tonight :

Think of His goodness, His patience, and love :

Pleading thy cause with His Father above :

Come, and repenting, oh, give Him thy heart :

Grieve Him no longer, but come as thou art :

 

4

Yes, there is pardon for all who believe :

Come, and this moment a blessing receive :

Jesus is waiting, oh, hear Him proclaim :

Cling to His promise, believe on His name :

 

SS & S 394  Wilt thou not come, O soul opprest

Wilt thou not come, O soul opprest,

To Him who offers peace and rest ?

While Jesus pleads, no longer stay;

He’s calling thee to-day.

 

He is call – – ing, gently call – – ing,

Do not turn from Him away ;

He is call – – ing, gently call – – ing,

He is calling thee to-day.

 

2

Wilt thou not heed the Saviour’s voice,

Believe His word, make Him thy choice ?

Accept His grace without delay;

He’s calling thee to-day.

 

3

Oh, hear Him say, ” Be not afraid,

On Me thy load of guilt was laid ; ”

” Come unto Me,”” I am the Way ; ”

He’s calling thee to-day.

 

4

O wandering one, no longer roam

Away from God, away from home ;

The Spirit’s voice at once obey ;

He’s calling thee to-day.

 



 

SS & S 395  Our life is like a stormy sea

Our life is like a stormy sea

Swept by the gales of sin and grief;

While on the windward and the lee

Hang heavy clouds of unbelief.

But o’er the deep a call we hear,

Like harbour bell’s inviting voice;

It tells the lost that hope is near.

And bids the trembling soul rejoice.

 

” This way, this way, O heart opprest,

So long by storm and tempest driven ;

This way, this way—- lo ! here is rest,”

Rings out the harbour bell of heaven.

 

2

Oh, let us now the call obey, [shore ;

And steer our bark for yonder

Where still that voice directs the way,

In pleading tones for evermore.

A thousand life-wrecks strew the sea ;

They’re going down at every swell :

” Come unto me ! Come unto me ! ”

Rings out th’ assuring harbour bell.

 

3

O tempted one, look up, be strong !

The promise of the Lord is sure,

That they shall sing the victor’s song,

Who faithful to the end endure.

God’s Holy Spirit comes to thee,

Of His abiding love to tell ;

To blissful port, o’er stormy sea,

Calls heaven’s inviting harbour bell.

 

4

Come, gracious Lord, and in Thy love

Conduct us o’er life’s stormy wave ;

Oh, guide us to the home above,

The blissful home beyond the grave ;

There, safe from rock, and storm, and flood,

Our song of praise shall never cease,

To Him who bought us with His blood,

And brought us to the port of peace.

 

SS & S 396  Jesus is tenderly calling thee home

Jesus is tenderly calling thee home—-

Calling to-day, calling to-day !

Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam,

Farther and farther away ?

 

Call – – ing to-day ! . . call – – ing to-day ! . .

Je – – – sus is call ing, is tenderly calling to-day !

 

2

Jesus is calling the weary to rest—–

Calling to-day, calling to-day !

Bring Him thy burden, and thou shalt be blest :

He will not turn thee away.

 

3

Jesus is waiting, oh, come to Him now—-

Waiting to-day, waiting to-day !

Come with thy sins, at His feet lowly bow;

Come, and no longer delay !

 

4

Jesus is pleading: oh, list to His voice—-

Hear Him to-day, hear Him today !

They who believe on His name shall rejoice ;

Quickly arise and away !

 



 

SS & S 397  Look unto Me, and be ye saved

Look unto Me, and be ye saved ! ”

Look, men of nations all ;

Look, rich and poor; look, old and

young ;

Look, sinners, great and small !

 

Look unto Him, and be ye saved I

O weary, troubled soul ;

Oh, look to Jesus while you may :

One look will make thee whole !

 

2

” Look unto Me, and be ye saved ! ”

Look now, nor dare delay ;

Look as you are —-lost, guilty, dead;

Look while ’tis called to-day.

 

3

” Look unto Me, and be ye saved ! ”

Look from your doubts and fears ;

Look from your sins of crimson dye,

Look from your prayers and tears

 

4

” Look unto Me, and be ye saved ! ”

Look to the work all done ;

Look to the pierced Son of Man ;

Look, and your sins are gone !

 

SS & S 398  NOT saved are we trying

NOT saved are we trying,

From self can come no aid;

‘Tis on the Blood relying,

Once for our ransom paid.

Tis looking unto Jesus,

The holy One and just ;

‘Tis His great work mat saves us –

It is not Try, but Trust !

 

It is not Try, but Trust !

It is not Try, but Trust !

‘Tis His great work that saves us:

It is not Try, but Trust !

 

2

‘Twas vain for Israel bitten

By serpents, on their way,

To look to their own doing,

That awful plague to stay ;

The only means for healing,

When humbled in the dust,

Was of the Lord’s revealing—-

It was not Try, but Trust !

 

3

No deeds of ours are needed

To make Christ’s merit more ;

No frames of mind, or feelings,

Can add to His great store ;

‘Tis simply to receive Him,

The holy One and just ;

‘Tis only to believe Him—-

It is not Try, but Trust !

 



 

SS & S 399  Not saved are we by trying

Not saved are we by trying,

From self can come no aid ;

‘Tis on the Blood relying,

Once for our ransom paid.

Come to the Saviour now !

He gently calleth thee ;

In true repentance bow,

Before Him bend the knee !

He waiteth to bestow

Salvation, peace, and love,

True joy on earth below,

A home in heaven above.

Come, come, come.

 

2

Come to the Saviour now !

Gaze on that cleansing tide—

Water and blood that flow

Forth from His wounded side.

Hark to the suffering One :

“‘Tis finished ! ” now He cries ;

Redemption’s work is done,

Then bows His head and dies.

Come, come, come.

 

3

Come to the Saviour now !

He suffered all for thee ;

And in His merits thou

Hast an unfailing plea :

No vain excuses frame,

For feelings do not stay ;

None who to Jesus came

Were ever sent away.

Come, come, come.

 

4

Come to the Saviour now !

Ye who have wandered far,

Renew your solemn vow,

For His by right you are.

Come, like poor wandering sheep

Returning to His fold—-

His arm will safely keep,

His love will ne’er grow cold.

Come, come, come.

 

5

Come to the Saviour, all !

Whate’er your burdens be ;

Hear now His loving call—–

” Cast all your care on Me.”

Come, and for every grief

In Jesus you will find

A sure and safe relief,

A loving Friend and kind.

Come, come, come.
