Ash Wednesday: Come, Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy

Ash Wednesday: Come, Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy March 6, 2019

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore!
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and power.

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in his arms,
In the arms of my dear Savior –
O, there are ten thousand charms.

Let not conscience let you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness he requireth
Is to feel your need of him.

Come ye weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and mangled by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.

Joseph Hart, 1759
