"Songs by the Way"
The Poetical Writings of the Right Rev. George Washington Doane, D.D., LL.D.

Arranged and Edited by His Son, William Croswell Doane

New York: D. Appleton, 1860.


RETURN, and come to God,
     Cast all your sins away,
Seek ye time Saviour's cleansing blood,
     Repent, believe, obey.

Say not, ye cannot come,
     For Jesus bled, and died,
That none, who ask in humble faith,
     Should ever be denied.

Say not, ye will not come,
     'Tis God, vouchsafes to call,
And fearful, shall their end be found,
     On whom, His wrath shall fall.

Come, then, whoever will,
     Come, while 'tis called to-day,
Flee to the Saviour's cleansing blood,
     Repent, believe, obey.
