Forgiveness

By Eliza Down

Oh, come and kiss the bleeding feet,
Nailed to the shameful tree!
Come in your chains of guilt and sin,
Come in your misery,
Come to the feet of Him
Who died to set you free!
Come, and your hearts of stone shall melt,
To think such love should be
So long despised, so long denied,—
Sinner, He cares for thee!
Come to the feet of Him
Who died to set you free!
The new pure heart shall Christ bestow,
Oh, taste His liberty!
Pardon and peace He giveth you
His joy your own shall be,
Come to the feet of Him
Who died to set you free!
Oh, kiss with tears the bleeding feet
Nailed to the shameful tree!
Come men, come women, stained with sin,
Slaves sold to infamy,
Come to the feet of Him
Who died to set you free!
