Representative Text

1 When Paul was parted from his friends
It was a weeping day;
But Jesus made them all amends,
And wiped their tears away.

2 Ere long they met again with joy,
(Secure, no more to part)
Where praises every tongue employ,
And pleasure fills each heart.

3 Thus all the preachers of his grace
Their children soon shall meet;
Together see their Saviour's face,
And worship at his feet.

4 But they who heard the word in vain,
Though oft and plainly warned;
Will tremble when they meet again,
The ministers they scorned.

5 On your own heads you blood will fall
If any perish here;
The preachers who have told you all,
Shall stand approved and clear.

6 Yet, Lord to save themselves alone,
Is not their utmost view;
Oh! hear their prayer their message own,
And save their hearers too.
