Lyrics

Come, sin­ners, to the liv­ing One,
He’s just the same Je­sus
As when He raised the wi­dow’s son,
The ve­ry same Je­sus.

Refrain

The ve­ry same Je­sus,
The won­der work­ing Je­sus;
Oh praise His name, He’s just the same
The ve­ry same Je­sus.

Come, feast up­on the liv­ing bread,
He’s just the same Je­sus
As when the mul­ti­tudes He fed,
The ve­ry same Je­sus.

Refrain

Come, tell Him all your griefs and fears,
He’s just the same Je­sus
As when He shed those lov­ing tears,
The ve­ry same Je­sus.

Refrain

Still fol­low Him for clear­er light,
He’s just the same Je­sus
As when He gave the blind their sight,
The ve­ry same Je­sus.

Refrain

Then calm ’midst waves of trou­ble be,
He’s just the same Je­sus
As when He hushed the rag­ing sea,
The ve­ry same Je­sus.

Refrain

Some day our rap­tured eyes shall see
He’s just the same Je­sus
Oh, bless­èd day for you and me!
The ve­ry same Je­sus.
