HARK, my soul,-it is the Lord!

'T is thy Saviour, hear his word:

Jesus speaks, he speaks to thee!

"Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me?

"I delivered thee when bound,

And, when bleeding heal'd thy wound;

Sought thee wand'ring, set thee right,

Turn'd thy darkness into light.

"Can a mother's tender care

Cease toward the child she bare?

Yes, she may forgetful be,

Yet will I remember thee.

"Mine is an unchanging love,

Higher than the hights above,

Deeper than the depths beneath,

Free and faithful, strong as death

"Thou shalt see my glory soon,

When the work of faith is done,

Partner of my throne shall be:

Say, poor sinner, lov'st me?"

Lord, it is my chief comp'aint

That my love is still so faint;

Yet I love thee and adore:

O for grace to love thee more!
