Amazing sight, the Savior standsAuthor: Henry Alline

1 Amazing sight, the savior stands
And knocks at every door!
Ten thousand blessings in his hands
To satisfy the poor.
2 "Behold," he saith, "I bleed and die
To bring you to my rest:--
Hear sinners, while I'm passing by,
And be for ever blest.
3 "Will you despise my bleeding love,
And choose the way to hell?
Or in the glorious realms above,
With me for ever dwell?
4 "Not to condemn your wretched race
Have I in judgment come;
But to display unbounded grace,
And bring lost sinners home.
5 "Will you go down to endless night,
And bear eternal pain?
Or in the glorious realms of light
With me forever reign?
6 "Say--will you hear my gracious voice,
And have your sins forgiven?
Or will you make that wretched choice,
And bar yourselves from heaven?"
