Hymn/Song Information

Heavenly truth in love dispensed Few




Heavenly truth in love dispensed,
Few, alas, with joy embrace:
Closed their eyes and ears to mercy,
Sinners slight the God of grace:
|: Self-deluded, :|
Downwards rush with rapid pace.


Though Jehovah often speaketh,
Hardened, they refuse to hear,
Carnal pleasures still pursuing,
They are caught in Satanís snare:
|: Disappointed, :|
Yet the world is still their care.


Lord, these careless souls to waken,
Send thy holy Spirit down;
Now the labours of thy servants,
With thy special blessing crown:
|: To the wanderers, :|
Be thy grace and mercy shown.


Let fair Zioní sons be gathered,
Own thee as their sovereign head;
In remotest lands and nations,
May thy glorious gospel spread:
|: Power celestial, :|
Raise to life the numerous dead.
