Come, Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy

This is one of my favorite songs. I always used to tell people that this is the song I want to be sung at my funeral. I later discovered that this is also the song my dad wants played at his funeral. So I thought it was a good song to put out on Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day, Dad!

Lyrics:
Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and pow’r.

Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.

Refrain:
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Oh, there are ten thousand charms.

View Him prostrate in the garden;
On the ground your Maker lies;
On the bloody tree behold Him;
Sinner, will this not suffice?

Lo! the incarnate God ascended,
Pleads the merit of His blood:
Venture on Him, venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude.
