120                     FABER'S HYMNS.
INVITATION TO THE MISSION.
Oh come to the merciful Saviour who calls you, Oh come to the Lord who forgives and forgets ;
Though dark be the fortune on earth that befalls you, There 's a bright home above where the sun never sets.
Oh come then to Jesus, whose arms are extended To fold His dear children in closest embrace;
Oh come, for your exile will shortly be ended, And Jesus will show you His beautiful Face.
Ye sons of dear England, your Saviour is calling You back to His Fold and your forefathers' faith;
Ah love Him, then, love Him; for the dark night is falling, And the light of His love shall be with you in death.
Yes, come to the Saviour, whose mercy grows brighter The longer you look at the depths of His love;
And fear not! 'tis Jesus, and life's cares grow lighter, As you think of the home and the glory above.
Have you sinned as none else in the world have before you? Are you blacker than all other creatures in guilt ? Oh fear not, and doubt not! the mother who bore you Loves you less than the Saviour whose Blood you have spilt.
