Representative Text

1 The Lord to Peter gave
Before He left the earth,
The keys to open wide the door
That leads to heavenly birth.

2 The Holy Spirit came
On Pentecostal day,
And gave by inspiration’s tongue
The true and living way.

3 How Christ the Lord of love,
By wicked hands was slain,
And overcame His enemies
By rising up again.

4 With piercèd hearts they cry,
"Ye men, what shall we do?"
The answer comes, ’tis mercy’s voice,
As Peter tells them true.

5 Repent and be baptized,
If promise you would claim,
Remitted, then, your sins shall be,
In Jesus’ holy name.

6 Come, sinners, one and all,
These terms to you are given;
No other way on earth is known
For this is bound in Heaven.
