New hymn lyrics for Come As You Are

New hymn lyrics for Come As You Are


For those who quite like the tune (whilst disliking the lyrics) of the hymn/song "Come as You Are", I suggest some alternate lyrics and a new title, "Come and Repent."

Come and repent, that's how He wants us,
Come and repent, why stay away?
Jesus is waiting, there to forgive us,
Come and repent; let's not stay away.

 

He came to call sinners, not just the virtuous.
He came as the Shepherd, calling His own.
Let's go to His arms, there He'll forgive us.
Come and repent; don't stay away.

 

We have sinned greatly, offended Him often.
Our sins are as scarlet, yet can be wiped clean.
Our loving Saviour, there to forgive us.
Come and repent; let's not stay away.
