lyrics

1. "Jesus sinners does receive":
Word of surest consolation;
Word all sorrow to relieve,
Word of pardon, peace, salvation!
Naught like this can comfort give:
"Jesus sinners does receive"
Naught like this can comfort give.

2. On God's grace we have no claim,
Yet to us his pledge is given;
He hath sworn by his own name,
Open are the gates of heaven.
Take to heart this word and live:
"Jesus sinners does receive"
Take to heart this word and live

3. When a helpless lamb doth stray,
After it, the Shepherd pressing
Thro' each dark and dangerous way
Brings it back, his own possessing
Jesus seeks thee, O believe,
"Jesus sinners does receive"
Jesus seeks thee, O believe!
Jesus seeks thee, O believe!

4. Oh, how blest it is to know:
Were as scarlet my transgression
It shall be as white as snow
By thy blood and bitter passion;
For these words I now believe:
"Jesus sinners does receive"
For these words I now believe.

5. Now my conscience is at peace,
From the Law I stand acquitted;
Christ hath purchased my release
And my every sin remitted.
Naught remains my soul to grieve:
"Jesus sinners does receive"
Naught remains my soul to grieve!
Naught remains my soul to grieve!

Refrain
"Jesus sinners does receive":
Word of surest consolation;
Word all sorrow to relieve,
Word of pardon, peace, salvation!
