5 Sinners, make haste our God to meet,

Come to the feast his love prepares ;
The lost are sought and sav'd-how sweet!

And not the righteous, Christ declares. 6 Say, what are you come out to view,

Jesus who once for sinners died ?
o hear the Saviour's voice to you,

Cast sinful, righteous self aside.
7 Lord, wilt thou stoop to be my guest?

Dost thou invite thee to my home?
Welcome, dear Saviour, to my breast,

To-day let thy salvation come. 79 C. M. New York 33. Hammond 226. Tho lost sheep found ; or, Joy in Heaven on the Conversion

of a Sinner, Luke xv. 3, 4. 1 WHEN some kind shepherd from his fold

Has lost a straying sheep, · Thro' vales; o'er hills, he anxious roves,

And climbs the mountain's steep: 2 Bat o the joy! the transport sweet! .1i

When he the wanderer finds ; Up in his arms he takes his charge,

And to his shoulder binds. 3 Homeward he hastes to tell his joys,

And make his bliss complete, The neighbours hear the news, and all

The joyful shepherd meet.
4 Yet how much greater is the joy

When but one-sinner turns ;
When the poor wretch, with broken heart,

His sins and errors mourns !
5 Pleas’d with the news, the saints below

In

songs their tongues employ; Beyond the skies the tidings go,

And heaven is fill'd with joy. 8 Well-pleas’d, the Father sees and hears,

The conscious sinner weep;

Jesus receives him in his arms,

And owns him for his sheep.
7 Nor angels can their joys contain,

But kindle with new fire ; 1'11
A wandering sheep's return'd, they sing,

And strike the sounding lyre.

In triumph thou shalt rise,

And shine above the skies.
