Expostulation with Sinners. 1 STOP, poor sinner! stop and think
Before you farther go !
of everlasting woe?
Into the burning lake!
That you His will oppose ?
With which He breaks His foes?
Like wax before the flame?
Will fill you with despair :
And what can yoụ reply? 4 Though your heart be made of steel,
Your forehead lin’d with brass,
He will not let you pass :
And Hide us from His face.
5 But as yet there is a hope
You may His mercy know;
He still forbears the blow:
He says, “There still is room."
Expostulation with Sinners. i W HY will ye lavish out your years
Amidst a thousand trifling cares; While in this various range of thought
The one thing needsul is forgot?'
And famish an immortal mind;
To see you spurn a heav'nly crown? 3 Th' eternal God calls from above,
And Jesus pleads His bleeding love; Awaken'd conscience gives you pain ;
And shall they join their pleas in vain ? 4 Not so your dying eyes shall view
Those objects, which ye now pursue; Not so shall heav'n and hell appear,
When the decisive hour is near. .
To fix convictions on the heart:
i SINNERS, turn, 'why will ye die? GOD, your Maker, asks you why? God, who did your being give, Made you with Himself to live ;
2 He the fatal cause demands,
Asks the work of His own hands,
3 Sinners, turn, why will ye die?
4 Will you let Him die in vain?
Crucify your LORD again?
5 Sinners, turn, why will ye die ?
6 Will ye not His grace receive ?
Will ye still refuse to live ?
“Why will ye Die?" 1 WHAT could your REDEEMER do More than He hath done for you, To procure your peace with God? Could He more than shed His blood ? After all His waste of love, All His drawings from above, Why will ye your LORD deny?
“Why will ye resolve to die?"
By His life your God hath sworn:
“Why will ye resolve to die ?”
Dare not think Him insincere: Now, e'en now, your SAVJOUR stands;. All day long He spreads His hands : Cries, “ Ye will not happy be! “ No, ye will not come to Me! “Me, who life to none deny;
“Why will ye resolve to die ?"
If to all His bowels move?
i Now to the LORD a noble song!
? See where it shines in JESU's face,
The brightest image of His grace:
3 The spacious earth and spreading flood
Proclaim the wise and powerful God; And Thy rich glories from afar Sparkle in ev'ry rolling star. .
4 But in His looks a glory stands,
The noblest labour of Thine hands :
