288. Say, sinner, hath a voice within

1 Say, sinner, hath a voice within
Oft whisper'd to thy secret soul,
Urged thee to leave the ways of sin,
And yield thy heart to God’s control?

2 Sinner, it was a heavenly voice—
It was the Spirit’s gracious call;
It bade thee make the better choice,
And haste to seek in Christ thine all.

3 Spurn not the call to life and light;
Regard in time the warning kind;
That call thou may'st not always slight,
And yet the gate of mercy find.

4 God’s Spirit will not always strive
With harden'd, self-destroying man;
Ye, who persist His love to grieve,
May never hear His voice again.
