1 Have our hearts grown cold since the days of old?
Have we left our souls’ “first love?”
Neither cold nor hot, God commends us not,
Nor our luke-warm ways approve.

Repent ye, repent ye, repent ye!
‘Tis the call of God to every land;
Repent ye, repent ye, repent ye!
For the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

2 Has the God above our supreme true love?
Have we bowed to Him alway?
Do we own His claim and revere His name,
And observe His holy day? [Refrain]

3 Do we honor those who have soothed our woes?
Have we rendered good for ill?
Are we pure in heart, doing all our part
To fulfill the Saviour’s will? [Refrain]

4 Are we always true in the thing we do,
In our words, our works, our ways?
Are we quite content with the blessings sent,
Giving God alone the praise? [Refrain]

5 Dare a mortal say—for a single day—
“I have kept Thy law, O God!
Undefiled by sin, I am pure within,
And I need no cleansing blood?” [Refrain]
