44. COME OVER

  1. There’s a land of peace and plenty,

    and its gates are open wide;

    And the pure in heart and

    Holy in its shelter may abide,

    It is not thro’ gates of glory

    That a soul must enter in;

    But all who would find entrance

    There must leave the ways of sin.

    Chorus:

    Come over, come over,

    To the land of corn and wine,

    There is nothing can compare with the many

    Holy pleasures there,

    Come over, come over, leave the

    Desert plain below and come away,

    Away, come o…. ver.

  2. There is bread of heaven growing,

    in its fair and fertile fields,

    And the wine of love its

    Vineyard to the thirsting mortal yields;

    There are mountain heights of

    Glory that await the trav’lers roo,

    And blest retreats where

    Empty souls draw nearer unto God

  3. Who would stay without its borders,

    in the desert dark and drear,

    When the luscious grapes of

    Eschol are so very, very, near?

    Enter in then with rejoicing,

    For the Lord is on your side,

    And in His glorious presence

    Ever more shall abide.

STEPS TO SALVATION
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
