Repent, ye sons of men, repent

Repent, ye sons of men, repent

Full Text

1 Repent, ye sons of men, repent;
Hear the good tidings God has sent,
Of sinners saved, and sins forgiven,
And beggars raised to reign in heaven,
Beggars, beggars, beggars, beggars, beggars,
raised to reign in heaven.

2 God sent his Son to die for us,
Die to redeem us from the curse,
He took our weakness; bore our load;
And dearly bought us with his blood,
Dearly dearly, dearly, dearly, dearly,
bought us with his blood.

3 In guilt's dark dungeon when we lay;
Mercy cried "Spare;" and justice, "Slay;"
But Jesus answered, "Set them free;
"And pardon them; and punish me."
Pardon, pardon, pardon, pardon, pardon
them; and punish me.

4 Salvation is of God alone;
Life everlasting in his Son;
And he, that gave his Son to bleed,
Will freely give us all we need.
Freely, freely, freely, freely, freely
give us all we need.

5 Believe the gospel and rejoice,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
His goodness praise, his wonders tell,
Who ransomed all our souls from hell.
Ransomed, ransomed, ransomed, ransomed, ransomed
all our souls from hell.
