1 Let us adore the grace that seeks
To draw our hearts above!
Attend, 'tis God the Savior speaks,
And every word is love.

2 So holy, just and pure his throne,
Each angle veils his face,
A people still he calls his own,
Amongst our sinful race.

3 Careless, awhile, thy live in sin,
Enslaved to Satan's power;
But they obey the call divine,
In his appointed hour.

4 "Come forth, he says, no more pursue,
The path that leads to death;
Look up, bleeding Savior view,
Look, and be saved by faith.

5 "My sons and daughters you shall be,
Through the atoning blood;
And you shall claim, and find in me,
A Father and a God."

6 Lord, speak these words to every heart,
By thine all-powerful voice;
That we may now fro sin depart,
And make thy love our choice.

7 If now we learn to seek thy face,
By Christ the living way;
We'll praise thee for this hour of grace,
Through an eternal day.

His life at sea teems with wonderful escapes, vivid dreams, and sailor recklessness. He grew into an abandoned and godless sailor. The religious fits of his boyhood changed into settled infidelity, through the study of Shaftesbury and… Go to person page >
