Will This Not Suffice?

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.

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.

Come, ye thirsty, come, and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.

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

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

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

Let not conscience make you linger,
Not of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.

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.


--Joseph Hart

One of my favorites! Thanks for posting it, I sat here and sang the whole thing. Have you heard Fernando Ortega's rendition?

One of my favorites as well. And Fernando's version is a great one.

I think I need to suggest we sing this at church fairly soon...

I may have heard Fernando Ortega's. . . He's someone I've heard about--and probably actually heard--but still don't connect the name to the sound.

I've been humming this all week. And have a lot of thoughts tumbling around my head about depravity, sinfulness, my need for Christ. . .

Link to recording by Ortega and Amy Grant. The song is wonderful. The slideshow is a little bit...I dunno, I wouldn't say corny, but not up to par with the music. Let it play and put page in the background ;)
