61. The Sinner Invited

1 Sinner, go, will you go
To the highlands of heaven,
Where the storms never blow,
And the long summer's given?
Where the bright, blooming flowers
Are their odors emitting,
And the leaves of the bowers
In the soft winds are flitting.

2 Where the saints robed in white,
Cleansed in life's flowing fountain,
Shining, beauteous, and bright,
They inhabit the mountain;
Where no sin or dismay,
Neither trouble nor sorrow,
Will be felt for the day,
Nor be feared for the morrow.

3 Will you go to that land
Where your friends wait to greet you?
There a beautiful band
Join with us to entreat you:
They are waiting above,
Waiting happy to hail you,
In those regions of love
Where no ills can assail you.
