“Repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Mark. 1. 15

J. Hart        L.M.

1
Repent, awakened souls, repent;
 Hear the good tidings God has sent,
 Of sinners saved, and sins forgiven,
 And beggars raised to reign in heaven.

2
God sent his Son to die for us,
 Die to redeem us from the curse;
 He took our weakness, bore our load,
 And dearly bought us with his blood.

3
In guilt’s dark dungeon when we lay,
 Mercy cried, “Spare;” and Justice, “Slay.”
 But Jesus answered, “Set them free,
 And pardon them and punish me.”

4
Salvation is of God alone;
 Life everlasting in his Son;
 And he that gave his Son to bleed,
 Will freely give us all we need.

5
Believe the gospel, and rejoice;
 Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
 His goodness praise, his wonders tell,
 Who ransomed our poor souls from hell.
