HEAR, O sinner, mercy hails you,

Now with sweetest voice she calls;

Bids you haste-accept the Saviour,

Ere the hand of justice falls:

Hear, O sinner-

'T is the voice of mercy calls.

See the storm of vengeance gathering

O'er the path you dare to tread,

The reward which God is measuring,

Soon shall fall upon your head;

Turn, O sinner-

Lest his lightnings strike you dead.

Haste, and flee to Christ your Saviour,

Seek his mercy while you may;

Soon the day of grace is over,

Soon your life must pass away:

Haste, O sinner-

You much perish if you stay.
