SS & S 401  Art thou weary ? art thou languid

Art thou weary ? art thou languid ?

Art thou sore distrest ?

“Come to Me,” saith One; “and coming,

Be at rest ! ”

 

2 Hath He marks to lead me to Him,

If He be my guide ?

” In His feet and hands are wound-prints,

And His side.”

 

3 Is there diadem as Monarch

That His brow adorns ?

” Yea, a crown, in very surety,

But of thorns.”

 

4 If I find Him, if I follow,

What His guerdon here ?

“Many a sorrow, many a labour,

Many a tear.”

 

5

If I still hold closely to Him,

What hath He at last ?

” Sorrow vanquished, labour ended,

Jordan passed.”

 

6

If I ask Him to receive me,

Will He say me nay ?

” Not till earth, and not till heaven,

Pass away.”

 

7

Finding, following, keeping, struggling

Is He sure to bless ?

“Saints, Apostles, Prophets, Martyrs,

Answer— Yes ! ”

 

SS & S 402  Press onward, press onward, and, trusting the Lord

Press onward, press onward, and, trusting the Lord,

Remember the promise proclaimed in His Word ;

He guideth the footsteps, directeth the way,

Of all who confess Him : believe and obey !

 

Believe and obey, believe and obey !

The Master is calling, —-no longer delay !

The light of His mercy shines bright on the way

Of all who confess Him : believe and obey.

 

2

Press onward, press onward, if you would secure

The rest of the faithful, abiding and sure ;

The gift of salvation is offered to-day

To all who confess Him : believe and obey !

Press onward, press onward, your

courage renew ;

The prize is before you, the crown is in mView ;

His love is so boundless, He’ll never

say Nay

To those who confess Him: believe and obey !

 



SS & S 403  Over the thorn and thistle

Over the thorn and thistle,

Along the stony way,

From the Shepherd’s care to the desert bare,

There wandered a sheep one day ;

And a voice fell sadly from far away :

” My sheep, how long wilt thou love to stray ? ”

 

2

Over the thorn and thistle,

Along the stony way,

With feet that bled, the Shepherd sped

To where the wanderer lay;

He had heard it crying from far away :

” Lord, bring me home to Thy flock, I pray ! ”

 

3

” Over the thorn and thistle,

Along the stony way,

I have sought for thee, now trust to Me,

I’ll bear thee home to-day.

The wolf and lion flee far away

When on My shoulder My sheep I lay.”

 

4

Instead of the thorn and thistle,

The myrtle bedecks the way

Where the Shepherd feeds and gently leads

The sheep He found that day;

And He leadeth others from far away

To rest in fields of a cloudless day.

Let Him cleanse thee at the fountain ;

Haste, oh haste, thee to the banquet ;

Come, for all things are ready ! ‘Tis a banquet of love ;

Here’s a free invitation from the Master above :

It is written in crimson, drawn from Calvary’s flood,

From the wonderful fountain of the

soul-cleansing blood.

 

Oh, what fulness in Jesus ! Oh, what gladness to know,

Though our sins be as scarlet, He’ll make them as snow.

 

2

Come, for all things are ready !

Heaven’s bounty is spread ;

Master doth seek.

But with my Saviour be at home ;

Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;

Cnce I was blind, but now I can see :

The Light of the world is Jesus !

Go, wash at His bidding, and light will arise,

SS & S 418  Out on the mountain, sad and forsaken

Out on the mountain, sad and forsaken,

Lost in its mazes, no light canst thou see;

Yet in His mercy, full of compassion,

Lo ! the Good Shepherd is calling to thee !

 

Calling to thee, calling to thee ;

Jesus is calling, ” Come unto Me ! ”

Calling to thee, calling to thee,

Hear the Good Shepherd calling to thee !

 

2

Far on the mountain, why wilt thou wander ?

Darker and darker thy pathway will be ;

Turn from thy roaming, fly from its dangers,

While the Good Shepherd is calling to thee !

 

3

Flee from thy bondage, Jesus will help thee,

Only believe Him, and thou shalt be free;

Wonderful mercy, boundless compassion:

Still the Good Shepherd is calling to there !

 



 

SS & S 419  Oh, hear the joyful message

Through Him, the Crucified ;

And call upon His name.

 

” Whosoever calleth, whosoever calleth,

Whosoever calleth on His name shall be saved !

Whosoever calleth, whosoever calleth,

Whosoever calleth on the Lord shall be saved ”

Ye souls that long in darkness

The path of sin have trod,

Behold the light of mercy !

Behold the Lamb of God !

With all your heart believe Him,

And now the promise claim—–

That none shall ever perish

Who call upon His name.

 

3

Ye weary, heavy-laden,

Oppressed with toil and care :

He waits to bid you welcome,

And all your burdens bear ;

A precious gift He offers,

A gift that all may claim,

Who look to Him believing,

And call upon His name.

 

 

SS & S 420  Just as thou art, without one trace

Just as thou art, without one trace

Of love, or joy, or inward grace,

Or meetness for the heavenly place,

O guilty sinner, come !

Trust not the world, it gives no rest ;

Christ brings relief to hearts opprest ;

O weary sinner, come !

Come, leave thy burden at the cross,

Count all thy gains but empty dross ;

His grace repays all earthly loss :

O needy sinner, come !

Thy aching heart, thy burning tears ;

‘Tis Mercy’s voice salutes thine ears :

O trembling sinner, come !

” The Spirit and the Bride say,

Come ! ”

Rejoicing saints re-echo, ” Come ! ”

Who faints, who thirsts, who will,

The Saviour bids thee come !

 



 

SS & S 421  Wouldst thou, O weary soul, be blest

Wouldst thou, O weary soul, be blest ?

In Christ the Lord thy Saviour see ;

His grace alone can give thee rest,

And lo ! He calleth, ” Come to Me!”

 

Oh, come to Me ! . . . Oh, come to Me I . . .

The Saviour calleth, ” Come to Me ! . . .

Ye heavy la den, come to Me, . . .

And I will give you rest.”

 

2

He does not wait for greater worth,

Or more of holiness in thee ;

He brings good news to all the earth,

And still He calleth, ” Come to Me!”

Hast thou not sinned ten thousand times ?

His pardoning grace will set thee free ;

Count unbelief the worst of crimes,

And trust thy Saviour’s ” Come to Me !”

 

4

Eternal life is in His Word,

He asks thee now His child to be ;

No sweeter sound was ever heard

Than His most gracious ” Come to Me!”

 

5

Be this thine answer now, and here :

” Since Thou hast kindly called for me,

Thy tender love dispels my fear ;

I come. I come O Lord, to Thee !

 

 

SS & S 422  Knocking, knocking, who is there

Knocking, knocking, who is there ?

Waiting, waiting, oh, how fair !

Tis a Pilgrim, strange and kingly,

Never such was seen before ;

Ah, my soul, for such a wonder,

Wilt thou not undo the door ?

 

2

Knocking, knocking ! still He’s there :

Waiting, waiting, wondrous fair :

But the door is hard to open,

For the weeds and ivy-vine,

With their dark and clinging tendrils,

Ever round the hinges twine.

 

3

Knocking, knocking—- what, still there ?

Waiting, waiting, grand and fair !

Yes, the pierced hand still knocketh,

And beneath the crowned hair

Beam the patient eyes, so tender,

Of thy Saviour waiting there.

 

 

SS & S 423  Why perish with cold and with hunger

Why perish with cold and with hunger ?

There’s plenty for all and to spare

In the beautiful home of thy Father,

And a welcome awaiting thee there.

 

Come ! come ! wanderer, come !

There’s plenty for thee in thy Father’s home;

Come ! come ! wanderer, come !

There’s welcome and love in thy Father’s home.

 

2

Come, wanderer, and say to thy Father,

” I’ve sinned against heaven and Thee ;

Not worthy a place with Thy children,

Thy servant I gladly would be.”

 

3

Thy Father is waiting to greet thee,

And watching for thee to return ;

His heart is so full of compassion :

Oh, prodigal, wilt thou not come ?

 

 

SS & S 424  Come unto Me ! ” It is the Saviour’s voice

” Come unto Me ! ” It is the Saviour’s voice—-

The Lord of life, who bids thy heart rejoice ;

O weary heart, with heavy cares opprest,

” Come unto Me,” and I will give you rest.

 

” Come unto Me, . . come unto Me, . . .

Come unto Me ; and I will give you rest,

I will give you rest, . . I will give you rest ! ” . .

 

2

Weary with life’s long struggle, full of pain,

O doubting soul, thy Saviour calls again ;

Thy doubts shall vanish, and thy

sorrows cease ;

” Come unto Me,” and I will give you peace.

 

3

O dying man, with guilt and sin dismayed,

With conscience wakened, of thy God afraid ;

‘Twixt hopes and fears——oh, end the

anxious strife !—-

” Come unto Me,” and I will give you life.

 

4

Life, rest, and peace, the flowers of

deathless bloom, [the tomb ;

The Saviour gives us, —–not beyond

But here and now: on earth some

glimpse is given

Of joys which wait us through the gates of heaven.

 



 

SS & S 425  Word, of words the sweetest

Word, of words the sweetest,

O word, in which there lie

All promise, all fulfilment,

Arid end of mystery !

Lamenting, or rejoicing,

With doubt or terror nigh,

 

I hear the ” Come ! ” of Jesus,

And to His cross I fly.

” Come ! . . . oh, come to Me ! . . .

Come ! . . . oh, come to Me ! ”

Weary, heavy-laden,

Come ! oh, come to Me ! ”

 

2

O soul ! why shouldst thou wander

From such a loving Friend ?

Cling closer, closer to Him,

Stay with Him to the end :

Alas ! I am so helpless,

So very full of sin,

For I am ever wandering,

And coming back again.

 

3

Oh, each time draw me nearer,

That soon the ” Come ” may be

Naught but a gentle whisper,

To one close, close to Thee ;

Then, over sea and mountain,

Far from or near my home,

I’ll take Thy hand and follow,

At that sweet whisper, ” Come ! ”

 

 

SS & S 426  Oh, turn ye, oh, turn ye, for why will ye die

Oh, turn ye, oh, turn ye, for why will ye die,

When God in great mercy is coming so nigh ?

Now Jesus invites you, the Spirit

says ” Come ! ”

And angels are waiting to welcome you home.

 

2

How vain the delusion, that, while you delay,

Your hearts may grow better, your chains melt away !

Come guilty, come wretched, come

just as you are,

All helpless and dying, to Jesus repair.

 

3

The contrite in heart He will freely receive ;

Oh, why will you not the glad message believe ?

If sin be your burden, why will ye

not come ?

‘Tis you He makes welcome ; He bids you come home.

 



 

SS & S 427  Look to the Saviour on Calvary’s tree

Look to the Saviour on Calvary’s tree—-

See how He suffered for you and me ;

Hark while He lovingly calls to thee,

” Look, and thou shalt live ! ”

 

Look, and thou shalt live !

Look, and thou shalt live !

Look to the cross where He died for thee :

Look, and thou shalt live 1

 

2

Hast thou a sin-burdened soul to save?

Life everlasting wouldst thou have ?

Jesus Himself a ransom gave :

Look, and thou shalt live !

 

3

Look to the Saviour who rose from the tomb ;

Haste now to Him, while there yet is room ;

His shining face will dispel thy gloom :

Look, and thou shalt live !

 

4

Jesus on high lives to intercede,

He knows the weary sinner’s need :

Surely thy footsteps He will lead :

Look, and thou shalt live !

Warning and Entreaty

 

 

SS & S 428  Why do you linger, why do you stay,

In the broad road, that most dangerous way—–

While right before you, narrow and strait,

Is the bright pathway to heaven’s pearly gate ?

 

Narrow and strait, . . narrow and strait . .

Is the bright pathway to heaven’s pearly gate.

 

2

Do you find pleasures lasting and pure

In the gay scenes that the thoughtless allure—–

While your Redeemer, with love so great,

Points to the way that is narrow and strait ?

 

3

Come, then, beloved, no longer stay ;

Leave the broad highway, oh, leave it to-day !

Make your decision——-oh, do not wait !

Take thou the pathway so narrow and strait !

 



 

SS & S 429 ” Yet there is room ! ” The Lamb’s bright hall of song,

With its fair glory, beckons thee along :

Room, room, still room !

Oh, enter, enter now !

 

2

Day is declining, and the sun is low ;

The shadows lengthen, light makes haste to go.

 

3

The bridal hall is filling for the feast ;

Pass in ! pass in ! and be the Bridegroom’s guest :

 

4

It fills, it fills, that hall of jubilee !

Make haste, make haste ! ’tis not too

full for thee !

 

5

Yet there is room ! still open stands

the gate—–

The gate of love; it is not yet too late :

 

6

Pass in ! pass in ! That banquet is for thee :

That cup of everlasting love is free ;

 

7

All heaven is there ! all joy ! Go in, go in !

The angels beckon thee the prize to win :

 

8

Louder and sweeter sounds the loving call :

Come, lingerer, come ! enter that festal hall :

 

9

Ere night that gate may close, and seal thy doom :

Then the last, low, long cry, ” No room, no room ! ”

 

10

No room, no room !

Oh, woful cry !—– ” No room ! ”

 

SS & S 430 Where will you spend Eternity ?

This question comes to you and me !

Teil me, what shall your answer be-

Where will you spend Eternity ?

 

Eternity ! Eternity !

Where will you spend Eternity ?

 

2

Many are choosing Christ to-day,

Turning from all their sins away ;

Heaven shall their blessed portion be

Where will you spend Eternity ?

 

3

Leaving the strait and narrow way,

Going the downward road to-day,

What shall the final ending be—–

Where will you spend Eternity ?

 

4

Turn, and believe this very hour,

Trust in the Saviour’s grace and power :

Then shall your joyous answer be,

Saved through a long Eternity !

 

Eternity ! Eternity !

Saved through a long Eternity !

 



 

SS & S 431 Nothing but leaves ! The Spirit grieves

O’er years of wasted life ;

O’er sins indulged while conscience slept,

O’er vows and promises unkept ;

And reaps, from years of strife,

Nothing but leaves ! nothing but leaves !

 

2

Nothing but leaves ! No gathered sheaves

Of life’s fair ripening grain :

We sow our seeds; lo, tares and weeds,

Words, idle words, for earnest deeds :

Then reap, with toil and pain,

Nothing but leaves ! nothing but leaves !

 

3

Nothing but leaves ! Sad memory weaves

No veil to hide the past :

And as we trace our weary way,

And count each lost and misspent day,

We sadly find at last—-

Nothing but leaves ! nothing but leaves !

 

4

Ah ! who shall thus the Master meet,

And bring but withered leaves ?

Ah ! who shall at the Saviour’s feet,

Before the awful Judgment-seat,

Lay down, for golden sheaves,

Nothing but leaves, nothing but leaves ?

 

 

SS & S 432 At the feast of Belshazzar and a thousand of his lords,

While they drank from golden vessels,

as the Book of Truth records :

In the night, as they revelled in the

royal palace hall,

They were seized with consternation

—–’twas the Hand upon the wall !

 

‘Tis the hand of God on the wall ! . . .

‘Tis the hand of God on the wall  . . .

Shall the record be—-” Found wanting ! ”

Or shall it be—- “Found trusting ! ”

While that hand is writing on the wall ? . . .

 

2

See the brave captive, Daniel, as he

stood before the throng,

And rebuked the haughty monarch

for his mighty deeds of wrong ;

As he read out the writing—–’twas the

doom of one and all,

For the kingdom now was finished—-

said the Hand upon the wall !

 

3

See the faith, zeal, and courage, that

would dare to do the right,

Which the Spirit gave to Daniel—-

’twas the secret of his might ;

In his home in Judea, or a captive in

the hall, [upon the wall !

He understood the writing of his God

 

4

So our deeds are recorded—–there’s a

Hand that’s writing now :

Sinner, give your heart to Jesus—- to

His royal mandate bow ;

For the day is approaching — it must

come to one and all,

When the sinner’s condemnation will

be written on the wall !

 



 

SS & S 433 Time is earnest, passing by;

Death is earnest, drawing nigh ;

Sinner, wilt thou trifling be ?

Time and death appeal to thee.

 

2

Life is earnest ; when ’tis o’er.

Thou returnest nevermore ;

Soon to meet eternity,

Wilt thou never serious be ?

 

3

God is earnest, kneel and pray

Ere thy season pass away ;

Ere be set His judgment-throne,

Vengeance ready, mercy gone.

 

4

Oh, be earnest! death is near ;

Thou wilt perish lingering here :

Sleep no longer, rise and flee ;

Lo, thy Saviour waits for thee!

 

 

SS & S 434 Oh, list to the watchman crying:

Come, come away!

The arrows of death are flying :

Come, come to-day !

 

Come, come away ! Come, come away !

Jesus is gently calling : Come, come to-day!

 

2

The Spirit of God is pleading :

Come, come away !

The Saviour is interceding :

Come, come to-day !

 

3

The mercy of God is calling:

Come, come away !

How sweetly the words are falling

Come, come to-day !

 

4

The angels of God entreat you :

Come, come away !

The Father Himself will meet you :

Come, come to-day !

 



 

SS & S 435 Come home, come home!

You are weary at heart,

For the way has been dark,

And so lonely and wild :

O prodigal child !

Come home ; oh, come home !

 

Come . . home ! . .

Come, oh, come home ! . .

 

2

Come home, come home !

For we watch and we wait ;

And we stand at the gate,

While the shadows are piled :

O prodigal child !

Come home ; oh, come home !

 

3

Come home, come home !

From the sorrow and blame,

From the sin and the shame,

And the tempter that smiled :

O prodigal child !

Come home ; oh, come home !

 

4

Come home, come home !

There is bread and to spare,

And a warm welcome there :

Then, to friends reconciled,

prodigal child !

Come home ; oh, come home !

 

 

SS & S 436 Oh, give thy heart to Jesus,

Thy weary heart of care ;

No friend can love so deeply ;

Go, find thy refuge there.

 

Oh, give thy heart to Jesus—-

A balm for every care ;

Go, hide beneath His shadow ;

No storm can reach thee there.

 

2

Oh, trust the heart of Jesus,

Breathe all thy sorrows there ;

He loves to hear thy pleadings,

Thy humble, contrite prayer.

 

3

Go, hide thyself in Jesus ;

No foe can harm thee there ;

His hand will lift thy burdens,

And all thy sorrows bear.

 

4

Go, lean thy heart on Jesus,

Who sees each falling tear,

No friend so true and tender

Can soothe thy every fear.

 



 

SS & S 437 Life at best is very brief,

Like the falling of a leaf,

Like the binding of a sheaf:

Be in time !

Fleeting days are telling fast

That the die will soon be cast,

And the fatal line be passed :

Be in time !

 

Be in time ! … Be in time ! . .

While the voice of Jesus calls you,

Be in time ! . . .

If in sin you longer wait,

You may find no open gate,

And your cry be just too late:

Be in time !

 

2

Fairest flowers soon decay,

Youth and beauty pass away ;

Oh, you have not long to stay :

Be in time !

While God’s Spirit bids you come,

Sinner, do not longer roam,

Lest you seal your hopeless doom :

Be in time !

 

3

Time is gliding swiftly by,

Death and judgment draweth nigh,

To the arms of Jesus fly :

Be in time !

Oh, I pray you count the cost,

Ere the fatal line be crossed,

And your soul in hell be lost :

Be in time !

 

4

Sinner, heed the warning voice,

Make the Lord your final choice,

Then all heaven will rejoice :

Be in time !

Come from darkness into light ;

Come, let Jesus make you right ;

Come, and start for heaven to-night

Be in time !

 

 

SS & S 438 Look not behind thee ; O sinner, beware !

Haste to the mountain, thy refuge is there ;

Trust not the voices that lure thee to stay ;

Jesus is calling thee—-then why still delay ?

 

List to the warning ! no longer remain ! t

Fly from the valley, escape from the plain !

Turn from the voices that lure thee to stay :

Angels are calling thee—–then why still delay ?

 

2

Look not behind thee; O lost one, beware !

Why dost thou linger ‘twixt hope and despair ?

Danger and darkness encompass thy way :

Jesus is calling thee——then why still delay ?

 

3

Look not behind thee, the tempter is near ;

Speed to the mountain, thy pathway is clear :

Jesus who loves thee is calling today :

Come to thy Father’s house——oh, why still delay ?

 



 

SS & S 439 Where will you spend eternity

Those years that have no end ?

Will it be in that better land ?

Will it be at God’s right hand ?

Will it be with the angel band ?

The angel band ?

 

Eternity, eternity—-

Where will you spend eternity ?

 

2

Where will you spend eternity—-

Those years that have no end ?

Will it be where the angels sing ?

Will it be with the glorious King ?

What a sublime and solemn thing !

A solemn thing !

 

3

Where will you spend eternity—–

Those years that have no end ?

Will it be where you are debarred

Ever to know and see the Lord ?

Ever to have His great reward ?

His great reward ?

 

4

Where will you spend eternity—-

Those years that have no end ?

Will it be on the golden shore,

Safe with the friends that have gone

Safe and happy for evermore? [before?

For evermore ?

 

SS & S 440 A blessing for you——will you take it ?

Choose ye to-day ;

A word from the heart—-will you speak it ?

Choose ye to-day :

Will you believe, or your Saviour neglect ?

Will you receive, or His mercy reject ?

Pause, ere you answer, oh, pause and reflect—–

Choose ye to-day.

 

2

A death to be feared—–will you fear it ?

Choose ye to-day ;

A voice that invites—-will you hear it ?

Choose ye to-day :

Strait is the portal and narrow the way ;

Enter, poor soul, and be saved while you may ;

Think what may hang on a moment’s delay—–

Choose ye to-day.

 

3

The cross of your Lord——will you bear it ?

Choose ye to-day :

There’s life in that cross—–will you share it ?

Choose ye to-day :

Soon will your time of probation be o’er,

Then will the Spirit entreat you no more,

Jesus no longer will stand at the door—–

Choose ye to-day.

Warning and Entreaty

 

4

The bondage of sin——will you break it?

Choose ye to-day :

The Water of Life—–will you take it ?

Choose ye to-day :

Come to the arms that are open for you,

Hide in the wounds that by faith you may mView ;

Death ere the morrow your steps may pursue—–

Choose ye to-day.

 



 

SS & S 441 In the silent midnight watches,

List——thy bosom’s door !

How it knocketh, knocketh, knocketh,

Knocketh evermore !

Say not ’tis thy pulse is beating—-

‘Tis thy heart of sin ;

‘Tis thy Saviour knocks, and crieth,

” Rise, and let Me in ! ”

 

2

Death comes down with reckless footsteps

To the hall and hut ;

Think you death will tarry knocking

When the door is shut ?

Jesus waiteth, waiteth, waiteth ;

But the door is fast :

Grieved, away thy Saviour goeth,

Death breaks in at last.

 

3

Then ’tis time to stand entreating

Christ to let thee in ;

At the gate of heaven beating,

Wailing for thy sin !

Nay ! alas, thou guilty creature !

Hast thou then forgot ?

Jesus waited long to know thee,

Now He knows thee not !

 

 

SS & S 442 Hark, sinner, while God from on

high doth entreat thee,

And warnings with accents of

mercy doth blend ;

Give ear to His voice, lest in judgment He meet thee ;

” The harvest is passing, the summer will end.”

 

” The harvest is passing, the summer

will end.”

” The harvest is passing, the summer will end.”

 

2

How oft of thy danger and guilt He

hath told thee !

How oft still the message of mercy doth send !

Haste, haste, while He waits in His

arms to enfold thee !

” The harvest is passing, the summer will end.”

 

3

Despised and rejected, at length He may leave thee :

What anguish and horror thy bosom will rend !

Then haste thee, O sinner, while He will receive thee !

“The harvest is passing, the summer will end.”

 

4

The Saviour will call thee in judgment before Him ;

Oh, bow to His sceptre, and make

Him thy Friend ;

Now yield Him thy heart, and make

haste to adore Him ;

” Thy harvest is passing, thy summer will end.”



 

SS & S 443 Have you any room for Jesus,

He who bore your load of sin ?

As He knocks and asks admission,

Sinner, will you let Him in ?

 

Room for Jesus, King of glory !

Hasten now, His word obey !

Swing the heart’s door widely open I

Bid Him enter while you may !

 

2

Room for pleasure, room for. business ;

But for Christ the crucified—-

Not a place that He can enter

In the heart for which He died ?

 

3

Have you any time for Jesus,

As in grace He calls again ?

Oh, ” to-day ” is ” time accepted,”

To-morrow you may call in vain.

 

4

Room and time now give to Jesus :

Soon will pass God’s day of grace ;

Soon thy heart be cold and silent,

And thy Saviour’s pleadings cease.

 

 

SS & S 444 O wanderer, come to the Father’s home’!

Why wilt thou farther roam ?

There’s joy and rest for the weary

In the Father’s home. [breast

 

Then come to the Father’s home ;

No longer sadly roam ;

There’s joy and rest for the weary breast

In the Father’s home.

 

2

Why linger away on the mountains cold ?

Why friendless and hopeless roam ?

There’s bread to spare, and there’s room for all,

In the Father’s home,

 

3

Oh come, and taste of the Father’s love !

Return, no more to roam,

For loved ones wait at the golden gate

Of the Father’s home.

 

4

Then come and rest in your Father’s

Beneath its sheltering dome ; [house,

There’s joy and peace that shall never cease

In the Father’s home.

 



 

SS & S 445 One there is who loves thee, waiting still for thee ;

Canst thou yet reject Him ? none so kind as He !

Do not grieve Him longer : come and trust Him now !

He has waited all thy days: why waitest thou ?

 

One there is who loves thee : oh, receive Him now !

He has waited all the day : why waitest thou ?

 

2

Tenderly He woos thee : do not slight

His call ;

Though thy sins are many, He’ll forgive them all.

Turn to Him, repenting: He will

cleanse thee now !

He is waiting at thy heart: why waitest thou ?

 

3

Jesus still is waiting: sinner, why delay ?

To His arms of mercy rise and haste away !

Only come believing, He will save thee now !

He is waiting at the door: why waitest thou ?

 

 

SS & S 446  ‘Tis the Saviour who would claim

Entrance to your heart :

Will you send your Lord away ?—-

Will you say—–“Depart ! ” ?

He will all your trials share,

He will cleanse you from all sin.

 

‘Tis your Saviour, ’tis your Saviour standing there :

Haste, and let Him in ! let Him in ! .

Lest He turn away, let Him in !

 

2

No one like the Saviour knocks

At the sinner’s door ;

‘Tis no stranger that implores,—–

He has knocked before ;

He has often sought your heart :

Shall He cleanse it now from sin ?

 

3

Oh, how can you bid Him wait

Till another day,

When already Jesus weeps

At the long delay ?

‘Twas for you that Jesus died,

And ’tis you He longs to win.

 

 

SS & S 447  In the land of strangers,

Whither thou art gone,

Hear a far voice calling,

” My son ! my son !

 

Welcome, wanderer ! welcome ! welcome back to home !

Thou hast wandered far away : come home; come home ! ”

 

2

” From the land of hunger,

Fainting, famished, lone,

Come to love and gladness,

My son ! my son !

 

3

” Quit the haunts of riot,

Wasted, woe-begone;

Sick at heart and weary,

My son ! my son !

 

4

” See the door still open !

Thou art still my own ;

Eyes of love are on thee,

My son ! my son !

 

5

” Far off thou hast wandered :

Wilt thou farther roam ?

Come ! and all is pardoned,

My son ! my son !

 

6

” See the well-spread table,

Unforgotten one !

Here is rest and plenty,

My son ! my son !

 

7

” Thou art friendless, homeless,

Hopel…

Only a step to Jesus !

Then why not take it now ?

Come, and thy sin confessing,

To Him, thy Saviour, bow.

 

 

SS & S 448  Only a step ! only a step !

Come, He waits for thee ;

Come, and thy sin confessing,

Thou shalt receive a blessing :

Do not reject the mercy

He freely offers thee.

 

2

Only a step to Jesus !

Believe, and thou shalt live ;

Lovingly now He’s waiting,

And ready to forgive.

 

3

Only a step to Jesus !

A step from sin to grace ;

What has thy heart decided ?

The moments fly apace.

 

4

Only a step to Jesus !

Oh, why not come, and say-

” Gladly to Thee, my Saviour,

I give myself away ” ?

 



 

SS & S 449  Turn thee, O lost one, careworn and weary,

Lo ! the Good Shepherd is pleading to-day ;

Seeking to save thee, waiting to cleanse thee:

Haste to receive Him—-no longer delay !

 

Tenderly calling, patiently pleading,

Hear the Good Shepherd calling to thee;

Tenderly pleading, patiently calling,

Lovingly saying, ” Come unto Me ! ”

 

2

Still He is waiting: why wilt thou perish ?

Though thou hast wandered so far from the fold—-

Yet with His life-blood He has redeemed thee ;

Wondrous compassion that cannot be told !

 

3

List to His message, think of His mercy !

Sinless, yet bearing thy sins on the tree ;

Perfect remission, life everlasting,

Through His atonement He offers to thee.

 

4

Come in the old way, come in the true way,

Enter through Jesus, for He is the Door ;

He is the Shepherd, tenderly calling;

Come in thy weakness and wander no more.
