THE HARDENED SINNER




Ah, what can I do,
Or where be secure!
If justice pursue
What heart can endure!
When GOD speaks in thunder,
And makes himself known,
The heart breaks asunder
Though hard as a stone.


With terror I read
My sins heavy score,
The numbers exceed
The sands on the shore;
Guilt makes me unable
To stand or to flee,
So Cain murdered Abel,
And trembled like me.


Each sin, like his blood,
With a terrible cry,
Calls loudly on God
To strike from on high:
Nor can my repentance
Extorted by fear,
Reverse the just sentence,
’Tis just though severe.


The case is too plain,
I have my own choice;
Again, and again
I slighted his voice;
His warnings neglected,
His patience abused,
His gospel rejected,
His mercy refused.


And must I then go,
Forever to dwell
In torments and woe
With devils in hell?
Oh where is the Savior
I scorned in times past?
His word in my favor
Would save me at last.


Lord JESUS, on thee
I venture to call,
Oh look upon me
The vilest of all!
For whom didst thou languish,
And bleed on the tree?
Oh pity my anguish,
And say, “’Twas for thee.”


A case such as mine
Will honor thy pow’r;
All hell will repine,
All heav’n will adore;
If in condemnation
Strict justice takes place,
It shines in salvation
More glorious through grace.
