8.7.8.7.


1
HAST thou heard God's wondrous message,
In His call of love to thee?
Wouldst thou turn from such entreaty,
Urged with gracious constancy?
2
Once, yea twice, He may have spoken,
As He waits thy heart to win;
Waits to fill thy soul with gladness,
Free thee from thy load of sin.
3
Now He calls again - O hearken!
He may never call thee more;
Wilt thou, canst thou spurn the message,
And His patient grace ignore?
4
Turn thee now to Him, repenting;
Jesus as Thy Lord confess;
And, embracing Him as Saviour,
Joys untold thou shalt possess.

H.P. Wells
