Hymn/Song Information

WAY OF SIN NOT THE WAY TO HEAVEN




Can sinners hope for heaven,
Who love this world so well?
Or dream of future happiness
While on the road to hell?


Shall they hosannas sing,
With an unhallowed tongue;
Shall palms adorn the guilty hand
Which does its neighbour wrong.


Can sinís deceitful way
Conduct to Zionís hill;
Or those expect with God to reign,
Who disregard his will?


ĎTis nought but grace divine,
Can solid hope afford;
The pure in heart alone shall see
The glory of the Lord.


---Alternative verses---


None shall hosannas sing,
With an unhallowed tongue;
Not palms adorn the guilty hand
Which does its neighbour wrong.


Neíer can sinís downward way
Conduct to Zionís hill;
Nor those expect with God to reign,
Who disregard his will.


Thy grace, O God, alone,
Can a good hope afford;
The pardoned and renewed shall see
The glory of the Lord.


Thy grace, O God, alone,
Good hope can e'er afford;
The pardoned and the poor shall see
The glory of the Lord.
