831. Ye wretched, starving poor!

1 Ye wretched, starving poor!
Behold a royal feast!
Where mercy spreads her bounteous store
For every humble guest.

2 Jesus, with open arms,
Is calling you to come;
Guilt holds you back, and fear alarms;
But see, there yet is room.

3 Room in the Saviour's heart;
There love and pity meet;
Nor will he bid the soul depart
That trembles at his feet.

4 The Father, reconciled,
Invites your souls to come;
The rebel shall be called a child,
And find in Christ a home.
