The triumphs of his grace!

The honours of thy name.

Your God, ye fallen race ;

The Lamb of God was nain,
For every foul of man. ,: 0

For God hath bidden all mankind. 2 Sent by my Lord, on you I call,
The invitation is to all i
All things in Christ are ready now... 3 Come, all ye fouls by sin oppreft,
Ye restless wand'rers after rest; Ye poor, and maim'd, and halt, and blind, In Christ a hearty welcome find. My message as from God receive : Ye all may come to Christ and live; O let his love your hearts constrain, Nor suffer him to die in vain! 5 His love is mighty to compel; His conqu’ring love consent to feel; Yield to his love's refiftless pow'r; And fight against your God no more.
