1 Amazing sight, the savior stands
And knocks at every door!
Ten thousand blessings in his hands

And choose the way to hell?
Or in the glorious realms above,
With me for ever dwell?

4 "Not to condemn your wretched race
Have I in judgment come;
But to display unbounded grace,
And bring lost sinners home.

5 "Will you go down to endless night,
And bear eternal pain?
Or in the glorious realms of light
With me forever reign?

6 "Say--will you hear my gracious voice,
And have your sins forgiven?
Or will you make that wretched choice,
And bar yourselves from heaven?"
