Inimitable Invitation



Tune: Rosefield

('Bread of heaven, on thee we feed')

*******

Forgive, Lord, where distracted

Where it seems your presence hid

Yet some of our own making

Where we turn from you our King

For your presence ever nigh

Is to those who to you fly

 

There find love, security

And forgiveness whole and free

All my sins on Jesus laid

He for me the price has paid

When this light on me does dawn

Afresh, I no longer mourn

 

Loved, accepted, through the Son

Jesus, He the work has done

To make man* acceptable (*mankind) 

Unto God, now welcomed all

Though only through Him we may

Find in Him redemption's day

 

Begone guilt, depression, sin

Christ's blood cleanses souls within

No accusation can stand

The Lord helps us by His hand* (* His Spirit)

It all-powerful and strong

Avails for us all along

 

So renewed, refreshed, restored

In th image of our Lord

We grow daily by His grace

'Til at last we see His face

In the great consummation

Rapture dawns for each nation

 

For all who in Him believe

Fullness of life do receive

And be ever with their Lord

He the true and living Word

Come to Him, it not too late

You shall find His mercies great
