HARK, the gospel trumpet's sounding!

Sinners hear the joyful call;

Christ, in pardoning love abounding,

Offers liberty to all.

Though your crimes have reached to heaven,

And of deepest dye appear,

Ask and they shall be forgiven,

Seek and you shall find him near.

Cast your load of guilt upon him,

To the Lord for mercy flee;

Though the strongest fetters bind you

His salvation makes you free.

Turn to Jesus, seek salvation,

Sound aloud his gracious name;

Glory, honor, adoration!

Christ the Lord to save us came.
