Author: Joseph Hart?
Earliest date: 1926 (Randolph; dated to 1759 in the Sacred Harp)
Keywords: religious Jesus
Found in: US(So)

Description

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

Notes

Randolph states that this is sung to the tune of "Go Tell Aunt Rhody." There is a similarity, but it is not the same tune (for one thing, this has two parts).

In the Sacred Harp, this appears with the tune "Beach Spring," which isn't even close to "Aunt Rhody." - RBW
