Song written by:
Original in English: Thomas Haweis (January 1, 1734, Redruth, Cornwall, England, UK – February 11, 1820, Bath, Somerset, England, UK)

1
From the cross uplifted high
Where the Savior deigns to die
What melodious sounds we hear
Bursting on the ravished ear
Love’s redeeming work is done
Come and welcome sinner come

2
Sprinkled now with blood the throne
Why beneath thy burdens groan?
On My piercèd body laid
Justice owns the ransom paid
Bow the knee and kiss the Son
Come and welcome sinner come

3
Spread for thee the festal board
See with richest bounty stored
To thy Father’s bosom pressed
Thou shalt be a child confessed
Never from His house to roam
Come and welcome sinner come

4
Soon the days of life shall end
Lo I come your Savior friend
Safe your spirit to convey
To the realms of endless day
Up to My eternal home
Come and welcome sinner come
