The Lord's Call to His Children
John Newton, 1779, from Olney Hymns, vol. 2, hymn 21
|Let us adore the grace that seeks|
To draw our hearts above!
Attend, 'tis God the Saviour speaks,
And every word is love.
2. Though filled with awe, before his throne
3. Careless, awhile, they live in sin,
|4. Come forth, he says, no more pursue|
The paths that lead to death;
Look up, a bleeding Saviour view,
Look, and be saved by faith.
5. My sons and daughters you shall be
6. Lord, speak these words to every heart,
|7. If now, we learn to seek thy face|
By Christ, the living way;
We'll praise thee for this hour of grace,
Through an eternal day.
