1 YE neighbours, and friends Of Jesus, draw near:
His love condescends by titles so dear
To call and invite you His triumph to prove,
And freely delight you In Jesus's love.
2 The Shepherd who died His sheep to redeem,
On every side Are gathered to him
The weary and burdened, The reprobate race;
And wait to be pardoned Through Jesus's grace.
3 The blind are restored Through Jesus's name,
They see their dear Lord, And follow the Lamb;
The halt they are walking, and running their race;
The dumb they are talking Of Jesus's grace.
4 The deaf hear his voice And comforting word,
It bids them rejoice In Jesus their Lord,
"Thy sins are forgiven, Accepted thou art;"
They listen, and heaven Springs up in their heart.
5 The lepers from all Their spots are made clean,
The dead by his call Are raised from their sin;
In Jesu's compassion The sick find a cure,
And gospel salvation Is preached to the poor.
6 To us and to them Is published the word:
Then let us proclaim Our life-giving Lord,
Who now is reviving His work in our days,
And mightily striving To save us by grace.
7 O Jesus! ride on Till all are subdued,
Thy mercy make known, And sprinkle thy blood;
Display thy salvation, And teach the new song
To every nation, And people, and tongue.
