LET THE WICKED FORSAKE




Sinners, the voice of God regard;
His mercy speaks today;
He calls you by His sacred Word
From sinís destructive way.


Like the rough sea that cannot rest,
You live devoid of peace;
A thousand stings within your breast
Deprive your souls of ease.


Your way is dark, and leads to hell;
Why will you persevere?
Can you in endless torments dwell,
Shut up in black despair?


Why will you in the crooked ways
Of sin and folly go?
In pain you travel all your days,
To reap eternal woe.


But he that turns to God shall live
Through His abounding grace:
His mercy will the guilt forgive
Of those that seek His face.


Oh, turn to God and you shall live,
For he doth guilt remove;
And every precious blessing give
To those who trust his love.


Bow to the scepter of His Word,
Renouncing every sin,
Submit to Him, your sovereign Lord,
And learn His will divine.


His love exceeds your highest thoughts,
He pardons like a God;
He will forgive your numerous faults,
Through a Redeemerís blood.

Sinners, the voice of God regard;
íTis mercy speaks today;
He calls you by His sacred Word
From sinís destructive way.


Sinners, the voice of God regard;
íTis mercy speaks today;
He calls you by His sovereign Word
From sinís destructive way.


Like the rough sea that cannot rest,
You live devoid of peace;
A thousand passions in your breast
Rage on, and never ease.


Your way is dark, and leads to hell;
Why will you persevere?
Will you in endless torment dwell,
A torment sure and near?


Why will you in the crooked ways
Of sin and folly go?
In pain you labour all your days,
To reap eternal woe.


Submit, then, to your soverign Lord,,
Renouncing every sin,
Receive each promise of his word,
And learn His will divine.


His love exceeds our highest thought
For he has Christ bestowed;
And all in Christ, at length, are brought,
To heaven his blessed abode.
