1 Christ is all the world's Good News;
Christ commands the world to choose:
heaven to find and hell to lose,
Turn and come to him.

2 Love into this world was sent;
love's full measure here was spent;
love to death and burial went;
look, and come to him.

3 Come, but counting first the cost;
come to bury every boast;
come to one who loves the lost;
think, and come to him.

4 If this great desire you have,
self must sink into the grave;
lose your life, and Christ will save;
die, and come to him.

5 But unless God draws us on
none can come to know his Son;
yet his love refuses none:
all may come to him.

6 Christ makes heavy burdens light;
Christ turns blindness into sight;
fills our hunger, sets us right;
trust, and come to him.

7 Christ the path, the light, the door;
come to him whose word is sure;
come you need no reasons more:
come, O come to him!
