Christ Receiveth Sinful Men
Sinners Jesus will receive;
Sound this word of grace to all
Who the heavínly pathway leave,
All who linger, all who fall.
Sing it oíer and oíer again;
Christ receiveth sinful men;
Make the message clear and plain:
Christ recieveth sinful men.
Come, and He will give you rest;
Trust Him, for His word is plain;
He will take the sinfulest;
Christ receiveth sinful men.
Now my heart condemns me not,
Pure before the law I stand;
He who cleansed me from all spot,
Satisfied its last demand.
Christ receiveth sinful men,
Even me with all my sin;
Purged from evíry spot and stain,
Heavín with Him I enter in.
