Representative Text

1 Lord, how large thy bounties are,
Tender, gracious, sinner’s friend!
What a feast dost thou prepare,
And what invitations send:
Now fulfill thy great design,
Who didst first the message bring,
Every heart to thee incline,
Now compel them to come in.

2 Rushing on the downward road,
Sinners no compulsion need,
Glory to forsake, and God,
See they run with rapid speed:
Draw them back by love divine,
With Thy grace their spirits win,
Every heart to thee incline,
Now compel them to come in.

3 Thus their willing souls compel,
Thus their happy minds constrain
From the ways of death and hell,
Home to God, and grace again;
Stretch that conquering arm of thine,
Once outstretch'd to bleed for sin;
Every heart to thee incline,
Now compel them to come in.
