        Poor Esau repented too late
        That once he his birth-right despised;
        And sold, for a morsel of meat,
        What could not too highly be prized:
        How great was his anguish when told,
        The blessing he sought to obtain,
        Was gone with the birth-right he sold,
        And none could recall it again!


        He stands as a warning to all,
        Wherever the gospel shall come;
        O Hasten and yield to the call,
        While yet for repentance there's room!
        Your season will quickly be past,
        Then hear and obey it today;
        Lest when you seek mercy at last,
        The Saviour should frown you away.


        What is it the world can propose?
        A morsel of meat at the best!
        For this are you willing to lose
        A share in the joys of the blest?
        Its pleasures will speedily end,
        Its favor and praise are but breath;
        And what can its profits befriend
        Your soul in the moment of death?


        If Jesus for these you despise,
        And sin to the Saviour prefer;
        In vain your entreaties and cries,
        When summoned to stand at his bar:
        How will you his presence abide?
        What anguish will torture your heart?
        The saints all enthroned by his side,
        And you be compelled to depart.


        Too often, dear Saviour, have I
        Preferred some poor trifle to thee;
        How is it thou dost not deny
        The blessing and birth-right to me?
        No better than Esau I am,
        Though pardon and heav'n be mine;
        To me belongs nothing but shame,
        The praise and the glory be thine.
