Hymn 165
1. Come, humble sinner, in whose breast
The Gospel word is sown;
Come, with your guilt and sin oppressed,
The name of Jesus own.

2. O come to Jesus, though your sins
Have, like a mountain, rose,
And to his cov'nant enter in,
Whatever may oppose.

3. Believe, repent, and be baptised,
And wash your sins away;
He'll send his Spirit from on high
When you the word obey.

4. In vain the sons of men have tried
A thousand different ways,
From anxious seats have called him Lord,
But ne'er do what he says.

5. In vain they worship at his feet,
Or bow before his throne,
While men's commandments still they teach,
And doctrines of their own.

6. The Lord from heaven has renewed
The covenant again,
And to the nations sent his word,
To make their duty plain.
