Sinners Will You Scorn The Message


Sinners! will you scorn the message
Sent in mercy from above?
Every sentence, oh, how tender!
Every line is full of love.
Listen to it!
Every line is full of love.

Hear the heralds of the Gospel,
News from Zion’s King proclaim,
To each rebel sinner, Pardon,
Free forgiveness in his name.
How important!
Free forgiveness in his name.

Who hath our report believed?
Who received the joyful word?
Who embraced the news of pardon
Offered to you by the Lord?
Can you slight it?
Offered to you by the Lord.

Oh, ye angels hovering round us!
Waiting spirits, speed your way;
Hasten to the court of heaven,
Tidings bear without delay;
Rebel sinners
Glad the message will obey.
