 Come Ye Sinners?

I have a question. I absolutly love the song "Come ye Sinners"--yet there is one part that i don't get..."in the arms of my dear saviour there are ten thousand charms?" what does that mean? If anyone has any insight i'd appreciate it

 Re: Come Ye Sinners?

Come, Ye Sinners

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore:
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and power:
He is able,
He is able,
He is willing: doubt no more.

or I think this is the one

I Will Arise and Go To Jesus
verses by J. Hart

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore:
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and power:


Refrain

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Now, ye needy, come and welcome:
God's free bounty glorify:
True belief and true repentance--
Every grace that brings you nigh--

Refrain

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him;

Refrain

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Bruised and mangled by the Fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all:

Refrain

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
O there are ten thousand charms.

View Him prostrate in the garden,
On the ground your Maker lies!
On the bloody tree behold Him,
Hear Him cry before He dies,

Refrain

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Lo, the incarnate God, ascended,
Pleads the merit of His blood:
Venture on Him, venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude:

Refrain

I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Saviour,
O there are ten thousand charms.

Now, ye needy, come and welcome:
God's free bounty glorify:
True belief and true repentance--
Every grace that brings you nigh--
Without money,
Without money,
Come to Jesus Christ and buy.

Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor for fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him;
This He gives you--
This He gives you--
'T is the Spirit's rising beam.

Come, ye weary, heavy-laden,
Bruised and ruined by the Fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all:
Not the righteous--
Not the righteous--
Sinners, Jesus came to call.

View Him prostrate in the garden,
On the ground your Maker lies!
On the bloody tree behold Him,
Hear Him cry before He dies,
"It is finished!"
"It is finished!"
Sinner, will not this suffice?

Lo, the incarnate God, ascended,
Pleads the merit of His blood:
Venture on Him, venture wholly,
Let no other trust intrude:
None but Jesus
None but Jesus
Can do helpless sinners good.

Pastor J. Hart
No. 376 in Sacred Songs and Solos

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me...

John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall
come to me; and him that cometh
to me I will in no wise cast out.

Revelation 22:17
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.
And let him that heareth say, Come.
And let him that is athirst come.
And whosoever will,
let him take the water of life freely

I had never heard of it but I just was interested in this the right one!!

 Re: Not OR Nor of fitness fondly dream

Is it supposed to be:

Let not conscience make you linger,
Not of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.

OR

Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.

 Re: Inotof

I think the Hym writer is using language of his day to describe the beauty of Jesus. Isaac Watts uses simililar language in his hymn Fairest Lord Jesus. Both beautiful hymns. Wish the church would sing more of the treasures God gas given us through the hymn writers.

Händel's Messiah will always stand the test of time because it is all set to scripture. Sorry, got a little carried away on hymnology. Hope I answered your question.
