f The message as from God receive; 3 Ye heavy-laden, sin-sick souls, Ye all may come to Christ and live: See from the Rock a fountain rise:

O let his love your hearts constrain; Nor suffer him to die in vain.

5 His love is mighty to compel; .

His conquering love consent to feel:

Yield to his love's almighty power,

And strive against your God no Inore.

6 See him set forth before your eyes,
A precious, bleeding sacrifice:
His offer'd benefits embrace,
And freely now be sav'd by grace.

7 This is the time, no more delay;
This is the acceptable day:
Come in, this moment, at his call,
And live for him who died for all.

276. T. 22.

SINNERS, obey the gospel-word, Haste to the supper of the Lord: Be wise to know your gracious day; All things are ready, come away.

2 Ready the Father is to own

And kiss his late returning son:

Ready your loving Saviour stands,

And spreads for you his pierced hands.

3 Ready the Spirit to impart
Grace to subdue the stubborn heart,
To shed Christ's love in you abroad,
And witness you are born of God.

4 Ready for you the angels wait,
To triumph in your blest estate:
All heaven is ready to resound,
“The dead's alive, the lost is found.”

5 Come, sinners, to your gracious Lord,

Incline your ear, and hear his word:

His offer'd grace with joy receive,

Hear, sinners, and your souls shall live.

277. T. 22.

H0, every one that thirsts, draw nigh,

"Tis God invites man's fallen race;

Salvation without money buy,

Buy wine, and milk, and gospelgrace.

2 Come to the living waters, come; Sinners, obey your Maker's call:

Return, ye weary wanderers, home, God's grace in Christ is free for all.

For you in healing streams it rolls From Jesus, made a sacrifice.

3 Behold, our God incarnate stands, And calls his wandering creatures home; [hands; He all day long spreads out his Come, weary souls, to Jesus come: Tho' ye be e'er so much oppress'd, Believe, and he will give you rest. 4 Ah, do not of his goodness doubt, His saving grace for all is free; He says, “I ne'er will cast him out, – Who as a sinner comes to me; I can to none myself deny:” [die 2 Come, sinners, come; why will you

280. T. 151.

SINNERS, would ye be healed?
Then come to Jesus Christ;
In him is grace revealed,
Come only undisguis’d:
Come poor and miserable,
Draw nigh just as you are;
You'll find, that he is able
Your losses to repair.

2 His wounds are open fountains
To wash you white all o'er;
Yea, were your sins like mountains,
Or sands on Ocean's shore,
Believe in the atonement
By Christ's all-saving blood:
Do not delay one moment;
Come to the Lamb of God.

281. T. 90,

WHERE shall my wondering soul begin, While I to heavenly songs aspire? A slave redeem'd from death & sin, A brand pluck'd from eternal fire; How shall I due thanksgivings raise, And sound my great Deliverer's praise? 2 O how shall I the goodness tell, Saviour, which thou hast shown to me? That I, a child of wrath and hell, A happy child of God should be; Should know, should feel my sins forgiv'n, And that I am an heir of heaven. 3 Outcasts of men, to you I call, Harlots and publicans, believe; He spreads his arms to embrace you all, Repenting sinners he'll receive; No need of him the righteous have, He came the lost to seek and save.

4 Come, O my fellow-sinners, come, Groaning beneath sim's ponderous weight; [home; He calls you now, invites you Come quickly, ere it be too late: Though foes protest, and friends repine, [mine. He died for crimes like yours and

5 For you the healing current flow'd From the Redeemer's wounded side; Languish'd for you the Son of God, For you the Prince of glory died:

| Believe, your sins shall be forgiv'n;

Only believe, and yours is heaven.
