Twenty-Fourth Day – Royal Invitation – by Francis R. Havergal

Will You Not Come?

‘Thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also.’—Ps. lxviii. 18.

WILL you not come to Him for life?
Why will ye die, oh why?
He gave His life for you, for you!
The gift is free, the word is true!
Will you not come? oh, why will you die?
 
Will you not come to Him for peace—
Peace through His cross alone?
He shed His precious blood for you;
The gift is free, the word is true!
He is our Peace! oh, is He your own?
 
Will you not come to Him for rest?
All that are weary, come!
The rest He gives is deep and true;
‘Tis offered now, ’tis offered you!
Rest in His love, and rest in His home.
 
Will you not come to Him for joy,—
Will you not come for this?
He laid His joys aside for you,
To give you joy, so sweet, so true!
Sorrowing heart, oh drink of the bliss!
 
 
Will you not come to Him for love—
Love that can fill the heart,
Exceeding great, exceeding free?
He loveth you, He loveth me!
Will you not come? Why stand you apart?
 
Will you not come to Him for all?
Will you not ‘ taste and see’?
He waits to give it all to you;
The gifts are free, the words are true!
Jesus is calling, ‘Come unto Me!’
