SECTION I. Exhorting Sinners.


C. M.

FOR a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer's praise!
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of his grace!

2 My gracious Master, and my GoD,
Assist me to proclaim,

To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of thy name.

3 JESUS! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease:
'Tis music in the sinner's ears:
'Tis life, and health, and peace.

4 He breaks the power of cancell❜d sin,
He sets the prisoner free;

His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood avail'd for me.

5 He speaks, and listening to his voice, New life the dead receive;

The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.

Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosen'd tongues employ ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy!

7 Look unto him, ye nations; own
Your God, ye fallen race;

Look, and be sav'd through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.

8 See all your sins on Jesus laid;
The Lamb of God was slain,

His soul was once an offering made
For every soul of man.

9 Awake from guilty nature's sleep,
And Christ shall give you light;
Cast all your sins into the deep,
And wash the Ethiop white.

10 With me, your chief, ye then shall know,
Shall feel your sins forgiven:
Anticipate your heaven below,
And own that love is heaven.




L. M.

YOME, sinners, to the gospel-feast;
Let every soul be Jesu's guest;

Ye need not one be left behind,
For God hath bidden all mankind.

2 Sent by my Lord, on you 1 call;
The invitation is to ALL:

Come, all the world; come, sinner, thou, All things in Christ are ready now.

3 Come, all ye souls by sin opprest, Ye restless wanderers after rest;

Ye poor, and maim'd, and halt, and blind, In Christ a hearty welcome find.

4. Come, and partake the gospel feast;
Be sav'd from sin; in Jesus rest:
O taste the goodness of your God,
And eat his flesh, and drink his blood.
5 Ye vagrant souls, on you I call;
(0 that my voice could reach you all!)
Ye all may now be justified;

Ye all may live; for Christ hath died.
6 My message as from God receive;
Ye all may come to Christ, and live;
O let this love your hearts constrain,
Nor suffer him to die in vain.

7 His love is mighty to compel ;

His conquering love consent to feel;
Yield to his love's resistless power;
And fight against your God no more.
8 See him set forth before your eyes,
That precious bleeding Sacrifice!
His offered benefits embrace,
And freely now be sav'd by grace.
9 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.

ALL that pass by, To Jesus draw


He utters a cry, Ye sinners, give ear! From hell to retrieve you, He spreads out his hands; [stands. Now, now, to receive you, He graciously 2 If any man thirst, And happy would be, The vilest and worst May come unto me; May drink of my Spirit, Excepted is none, Lay claim to my merit, And take for his own.

3 Whoever receives The life-giving word, In Jesus believes, His God and his Lord, In him a pure river Of life shall arise; Shall, in the believer, Spring up to the skies. 4 My God and my Lord! Thy call I obey; My soul on thy word Of promise I stay; Thy kind invitation I gladly embrace, Athirst for salvation, Salvation by grace. 50 hasten the hour, Send down from above The Spirit of power, Of health, and of love: Of filial fear, Of knowledge and grace: Of wisdom and prayer, Of joy, and of praise: 6 The Spirit of faith, Of faith in thy blood, Which saves us from wrath, And brings us to God: [sin, Removes the huge mountain Of indwelling And opens a fountain That washes us clean.


[blocks in formation]

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.
2" Come to the living waters, come!
Sinners, obey your Maker's call;
Return, ye weary wanderers, home,
And find my grace is free for all.
3" See from the rock a fountain rise!
For you in healing streams it rolls;
Money ye need not bring, nor price,
Ye labouring, burden'd, sin-sick souls.

[ocr errors]

Nothing ye in exchange shall give, Leave all you have and are behind; Frankly the gift of God receive, Pardon and peace in Jesus find.
