SINNERS, turn-why will you die?

God, your Maker, asks you why:

God, who did your being give,

Made you with himself to live.

Sinners, turn-why will you die?

Christ, your Saviour, asks you why?

He, who did your souls retrieve,

He, who died that you might live.

Will you let him die in vain?

Crucify your Lord again?

Why-you ransomed sinners-why

Will you slight his grace and die?

Will you not his grace receive?

Will you refuse to live?

Oh! you sinners, why-

Why will you forever die?
