III. WARNING AND INVITATION.
1 Come, sinners, saith the mighty God,
Abhorrent as your crimes have been,
Tu reason with the sons of men.
No vengeful lightnings flash around;
. 3 Yes, Lord, we will obey thy call,
And to thy gracious sceptre bow;
Our scarlet guilt like stainless snow. 4 So shall our thankful lips repeat
Thy praises with a tuneful voice,
8s, 7s & 4s M.
Heavenly mercy now implore;
He is able,
2 Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
This he gives you ;
'Tis his Spirit's rising beam. 3 Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Lost and ruined in your thrall !
Not the righteous
Behold a royal feast !
For every humble guest.
He calls, he bids you come;
see, there yet is room.
The blessings of his love ;
Of nobler joys above.
Before th' eternal throne,
In ecstacies unknown.
1 Let every mortal ear attend,
And every heart rejoice;
With an inviting voice.
Who feed upon the wind,
To fill th' immortal mind
3 Eternal wisdom has prepared
A soul-reviving feast;
The rich provision taste.
And pine away and die;
With streams that never dry.
5 The happy gates of gospel grace,
Stand open night and day;
And drive our wants away.
1 Come! said Jesus' sacred voice,
Come and make my paths your choice;
2 Thou who houseless, sole, forlorn,
Long hast borne the proud world's scorn ; ;
Weary pilgrim, hither haste. 3 Ye by fiercer anguish torn,
In remorse for guilt who mourn,
A wounded spirit who can bear ? 4 Sinner, come! for here is found
Balin that flows for every wound;
TOPLADI. 1 Blow ye the trumpet, blow,
The gladly solemn sound;
To earth's remotest bound,
of Jubilee is come ;
Hath full provision made;
of Jubilee is come;
Your heritage above,
The gift of Jesus' love;
1 Ye dying sons of men,
Immerged in guilt and woe!
Its message is to you!
In mercy's arms there yet is room.
Nor vain excuses frame;
Though poor, and blind, and lame:
For every trembling soul there's room.
Ye wandering sheep, draw near !
The Shepherd's voice now hear :
1 The Spirit, in our hearts,
Is whispering 'Sinner, come;'
To all his children · Come!'
2 Let him that heareth say
To all about him, Come!'
To Christ, the fountain, come.
