3 Room in the SAVIOUR'S bleeding heart; There love and pity meet;

Nor will he bid the soul depart,
That trembles at his feet.

4 [In him the Father reconcil'd
Invites your souls to come;
The rebel shall be call'd a child,
And kindly welcom❜d home.]


5 O come, and with his children taste
The blessings of his love;
While hope attends the sweet repast
Of nobler joys above.

6 There, with united heart and voice,
Before th' eternal throne,
Ten thousand thousand souls rejoice,
In blessedness unknown.

7 And yet ten thousand thousand more,
Are welcome still to come:
Ye longing souls, the grace adore,
Approach, there yet is room.

2 Come, all ye souls by sin opprest,
Ye restless wanderers after rest;
Ye poor,and maim'd, and halt,and blind,
In CHRIST a hearty welcome find.
3 Come and partake the Gospel feast;
Be sav'd from sin, in JESUS rest;
The message as from God receive;
Freely to JESUS come and live.
4 See him set forth before your eyes,
That precious, bleeding sacrifice:
His offer'd benefits embrace,
And taste his free, redeeming grace.
5 This is the time, no more delay,
Behold the acceptable day;

O then come in at JESU's call,
And live thro' him who died for all.

Yet there is room.-LUKE xiv. 22.




YE dying sons of men,
Immers'd in sin and woe,
The Gospel's voice attend,
While JESUSs sends to

Tho' poor, and blind, and lame:

All things are ready, sinner, come;
For every trembling soul there's room.


3 Believe the heav'nly word
His messengers proclaim;
He is a gracious LORD,
And faithful is his name:
Backsliding souls, return and come,
Cast off despair, there yet is room.

Ye wand'ring sheep, draw near;
CHRIST calls you from above,
His gracious accents hear!
Let whosoever will, now come :
In mercy's breast there still is room.

L.M. For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, &c.; but ye are come unto mount Sion, &c.; see that ye refuse not him that speaketh.-HEB. xii. 18 to 25.

THE GOD who once to Israel spoke
From Sinai's top in fire and smoke,
In gentler strains of gospel grace
Invites us now to seek his face.
