SINNERS, hear your Lord and Saviour,

Hear his gracious voice to-day;

Turn from all your vain behavior,

O repent, return, obey.

O be wise before you languish

On the bed of dying strife;

Endless joy, or endless anguish,

Turn upon th' events of life.

Open now your case before him,

Bid the Saviour welcome in;

O receive him, O adore him,

Take a full discharge from sin.

Come, for all things now are ready,

Yet there's room for many more;

O you blind, you lame, you needy,

Come to wisdom's boundless store.
