Lyrics

That grand word who­so­ev­er
Is ring­ing through my soul,
Whosoever will may come;
In ri­vers of sal­va­tion
The liv­ing wa­ters roll,
Whosoever will may come.

Refrain

O that who­so­ev­er!
Whosoever will may come;
The Sav­ior’s in­vi­tation
Is free­ly sound­ing still,
Whosoever will may come.

Whenever this sweet mes­sage
In God’s own Word I see,
Whosoever will may come,
I know ’tis meant for sin­ners,
I know ’tis meant for me,
Whosoever will may come.

Refrain

I heard the lov­ing mes­sage,
And now to oth­ers say,
Whosoever will may come;
Seek now the pre­cious Sav­ior,
And He’ll be yours to­day,
Whosoever will may come.

Refrain

To God be all the glo­ry!
His on­ly Son He gave,
Whosoever will may come;
And those who come be­liev­ing,
He’ll to the ut­most save,
Whosoever will may come.
