1 Listen to the gentle promptings
Of the Spirit’s warning voice;
Will you heed His solemn warnings?
Can ye slight His wondrous love?
2 Sweetly calling on the erring,
Pardons offered without price;
Come, and ‘round the altar kneeling,
O, receive the offered grace.
3 Joy and hope the troubled conscience
Will allay with soothing peace;
Press ye, then, to realms of glory;
Run with joy and offered race.
4 Hesitate no longer, sinner,
Lest the Spirit, sad and grieved,
Should forsake thee now and ever,
Never more to be deceived.
