Wonderful Tidings Mercy Is Bearing


Wonderful tidings mercy is bearing,
Sweetly declaiming, while the words like gentle music fall,
Jesus is calling, tenderly calling,
Tenderly saying, there is room for all;
Room for all, yes, room for all;
Come and welcome still, whosoever will;
Haste away, no more delay;
Come, o come, the Saviour calls today!

Wonderful tidings joyfully sounding,
Hear them resounding from the happy, happy gate of love;
Jesus is calling,-let us adore him,
Gather before him, and seek his love.
He is love and Lord above;
Waiting now he stands, see his blessed hands;
Hear him say, oh, why delay?
Come, o come, the Saviour calls today!

Wonderful tidings, still they are ringing;
Sweetly they tell us of a blessed Saviour ever near,
Jesus is calling,-we may believe him;
How can we grieve him, our friend so dear?
He is near, our friend so dear,
Now his tender care all of us may share;
Haste away, no longer stay,
Come, o come, the Saviour calls today!
