O, HOW can we slumber! the Master is come

And calling on sinners to seek them a home;

The Spirit and Bride now in concert unite,

The weary they welcome, the careless invite.

O, how can we slumber! our foes are awake;

To ruin poor souls every effort they make;

To accomplish their object no means are untried,

The careless they comfort, the wakeful misguide.

O, how can we slumber! when so much was done,

To purchase salvation by Jesus the Son!

Now mercy is proffer'd, and justice display'd

Now God can be honor'd, and sinners be saved.
