BRETHREN, see poor sinners round you,

Slumbering on the brink of woe;

Far from God and unconverted;

Can you bear to see it so?

There are fathers-there are mothers,

And their children sinking down;

Brethren, go, exhort poor sinners,

Speak the word to all around.

Brethren, there's the poor backslider,

Who was once at heaven's door;

Bid him not betray his Saviour,

And be worse than e'er before.

Now his Saviour offers pardon,

If he will repent and turn;

Brethren, go, exhort the sinner;

Speak the word to all around.

Sisters, will you join and help us?

Moses' sister aided him;

Will you seek the trembling mourners

Who are laboring hard with sin?

Tell them all about the Saviour;

Tell them that he will be found;

Sisters, go, exhort the mourner-

Speak the word to all around.

Let us love our Lord supremely,

Let us love each other too;

Let us love and work for sinners,

Till our Lord makes all things new.

Then, when we get home to heaven,

At his table we'll sit down;

Christ will gird himself and serve us,

With sweet manna all around.
