Morning Prayer -- Lowell Mason -- Come Sinners to the Gospel Feast

1 Come sinners, to the gospel feast,
Let every soul be Jesus' guest;
Ye need not one be left behind,
For God hath bid all mankind.
2 "Have me excused" why will you say?
From health, and life, and liberty;
From all that is in Jesus given,
From pardon, holiness and heaven.
3 Come then you souls by sin oppressed,
Ye weary wanderers after rest;
Ye poor and maimed, halt and blind,
In Christ a hearty welcome find.
4 See him set forth before your eyes,
Behold the bleeding sacrifice;
His offered love let all embrace,
And freely now be saved by grace.
5 Ye who believe his record true,
Shall sup with him and he with you;
Come to the feast be saved from sin,
For Jesus waits to take you in.
6 This is the time, no more delay;
This is the glorious gospel day.
Come in this moment at his call,
And live to him who died for all.
