Jesus Pleading for Sinners

Full Text

1 Now the Savior stands a pleading
At the sinner's bolted heart,
Now in heaven is interceding,
Undertaking sinners part.

Refrain:
Sinners can you hate the Savior,
Can you thrust him from your arms;
Here he died for your behavior,
Now he calls you to his charms.

2 Now he pleads his sweat and bloodshed,
Shows his wounded hands and feet--
Father save them though they're blood red,
Raise them to an heavenly seat. [Refrain]

3 Sinners hear your God and Savior,
Hear his gracious voice today:
Turn from all your base behavior,
Now return, repent and pray. [Refrain]

4 Open now your hearts before him,
Bid your Savior welcome in;
Now receive, and love, adore him,
Take a full discharge of sin, [Refrain]

5 Now he's waiting to be gracious,
Now he stands and looks on thee;
See what kindness, love, and pity,
Shines around, on you and me. [Refrain]

6 Come! for all things now are ready--
Yet there's room for many more.
O ye blind, ye lame, and needy,
Come to grace's boundless store. [Refrain]

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1801

From 1776 to 1790 he was in Virginia, and thereafter in Massachusetts, mostly at Cheshire. He died Jan. 14, 1841. His Sermons, Addresses, Essays and Autobiography were published by his niece, Miss L. F. Greene, at Lanesboro, Massachusetts, in 1845. His influence seems to have been equalled by his peculiarities. We hear of his "restless activity and roving disposition"; his "mad devotion to politics," wherein he had much local and temporary weight; his "ready wit and endless eccentricities;" as also of his high character. Of the hymns which have been ascribed to him, some on doubtful authority, the followin… Go to person page >
