For better joys on high.

God reasoning


Men, Isaiah i. 18.,-
1 COME, sinners, saith the mighty God,

Heinous as all your crimes have been,
Lo! I descend from mine abode

To reason with the sons of men. 2 No clouds of darkness veil my face,

No vengeful lightnings flash around;

I come with terms of life and peace; •2"): "Where sin hath reign'd let grace

abound. 3. Yes, Lord, we will obey thy call,

And to thy gracious sceptre bow; .:, y Oh make our crimson sins like wool,

Our scarlet crimes as white as snow. • As the few Hymns in the former editions of this volume, entitled Scripture Invitations and Promises, bare been found peculiarly acceptable and encouraging, the Section is now considerably enlarged.
