Hymn: TLH 324, st. 1,5,6: Jesus Sinners Doth Receive

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Jesus sinners doth receive; 
Oh, may all this saying ponder 
Who in sin’s delusions live 
And from God and heaven wander! 
Here is hope for all who grieve– 
Jesus sinners doth receive. 

5. I, a sinner, come to Thee 
With a penitent confession; 
Savior, mercy show to me 
Grant for all my sins remission. 
Let these words my soul relieve: 
Jesus sinners doth receive. 

6. Oh, how blest it is to know; 
Were as scarlet my transgression, 
It shall be as white as snow 
By Thy blood and bitter Passion: 
For these words I now believe: 
Jesus sinners doth receive.
