Representative Text

1 Stay, sinner, stay! the night comes on,
When slighted mercy is withdrawn;
The Holy Spirit strives no more,
And Jesus gives his pleadings o’er.

2 Stay, sinner, stay! the Father’s call
Now bids you come, forsaking all;
Oh, come, and he will bid you live,
Oh, come, and freely he’ll forgive.

3 Stay, sinner, stay! ‘tis Jesus pleads,
For you he weeps, for you he bleeds;
Oh, let his love your heart constrain,
Nor let him weep and bleed in vain.

4 Stay, sinner, stay! the Spirit cries,
Awake, and from the dead arise;
Arise and plead for mercy now,
And at the cross repenting bow.

5 Come, sinner, come! though guilty now,
At Jesus’ feet submissive bow,
And freely all shall be forgiven;—
Oh, come, and taste the joys of heaven.

6 See, sinner, see! where loved ones stand,
All saved in heaven—a happy band;
Oh, come, and join them on that shore,
Where death and parting are no more.
