1 Come brethren and sisters that love my dear Lord,
I pray give attention and ear to my word;
What a wonder of mercies behold now I see,
What a tender kind Savior has done for poor me.
2 I was led by the devil till lost and distressed,
I thought that in torments I soon should be cast,
No peace to the wicked, but all misery,
Till by faith I saw Jesus hang bleeding for me.
3 Oh sinner, said Jesus, you you I have died,
All glory to Jesus, my soul then replied:
The guilt was removed, my soul did rejoice,
The blood was applied, the witness and voice.
4 On my low bending knees before God I did fall,
All glory to Jesus, for he's all in all;
The heart of this rebel was bursted in twain,
At sight of Christ Jesus on Calvary slain.
5 There was peace now in heaven and peace upon earth,
The angels rejoice at a poor sinner's birth:
Your sins are forgiven, my Savior did say,
Oh! witness kind heaven, on this my birth-day.
6 My soul it was humbled, I fell to the ground
The time of refreshing at length I have found,
Oh Lord, thou hast ravish'd my soul with thy charms,
Let me die like Simeon, with Christ in my arms.
