Hymn/Song Information

Repent the voice celestial cries No longer dare




Repent, the voice celestial cries,
Nor longer dare delay:
The wretch that scorns the mandate dies,
And meets a fiery day.


The summons goes through all the earth;
Let earth attend and fear;
Listen, ye men of royal birth,
And let your vassals hear.


No more the sovereign eye of God
O'erlooks the crimes of men;
His heralds are dispatched abroad
To warn the world of sin.


Together in his presence bow.
And all your guilt confess;
Accept the offered Saviour now.
Nor trifle with his grace.


Bow, ere the awful trumpet sound.
And call you to his bar:
For mercy knows th' appointed bound,
And turns to vengeance there.


Amazing love, that yet will call.
And yet prolong our days!
Our hearts, subdued by goodness, fall.
And weep, and love, and praise.


---Alternative verses---


Repent, the voice celestial cries,
No longer dare delay:
The wretch that scorns the mandate dies,
And meets a fiery day.
