Heythorr. COME guilty souls, and flee away,
To Christ to heal your wounds :
Wherein free grace abounds.
To drink the cup of wrath ;
That come to him by faith.
Before you farther go;
Of everlasting woe?
Sins of a blood crimson dye,
That you his will oppose ?
With which he breaks bis foes? Can you stand in that great day,
When he judgment shall proclaim, And the earth shall melt away
Like wax before the flame ? Though your heart be made of steel,
Your forehead lin’d with brass;
God at length will make you feel,
He will not let you pass : Sinners then in vain will call,
Though they now despise his grace, Rocks and mountains on us fall,
And hide us from his face.” Yet, however, there is hope,
You may his mercy know; Though his arm is lifted up,
He still forbears the blow : 'Twas for sinners Jesus died d;
Sinners he invites to come; None who come shall be denied,
“ There still is room.”
Invitation. SINNERS the gladsome tidings hear, The messengers of truth declare; Pointing the way that leads to God, Salvation through a Saviour's blood. Ye weeping souls, dry up your tears, Grace calls you to renounce your fears; Justice was fully satisfied When on the cross our Jesus died. Yes, let the vilest come to him, Who did the dying thief redeem; Hearts base as hell he can control, And spread new influence thro' the soul.
O, be ye reconciled to God !
WHY will ye lavish out your years,
Pardon, and life, and endless peace;
Peru. HO every one that thirsts, draw nigh;
'Tis God invites the fallen race; Mercy and free salvation buy,
Buy wine, and milk, and gospel grace. Come to the living waters, come;
Sinners obey your Maker's voice; Return ye weary wand'rers home,
And in his saving grace rejoice. See from the rock a fountain rise!
For you in healing streams it rolls; Money ye need not bring, nor price,
Ye lab'ring burden'd, sin-sick souls. Nothing ye in exchange shall give;
Leave all you have, and are, behind; Freely the gift of God receive,
Pardon and peace in Jesus find.
