The World Of Sinners Know Not God

The world of sinners know not God,
Nor read the gospel true;
They care not for the holy Word,
But they are reading you.

A gospel others daily see,
Your words and deeds inditing;
Oh, what do men read in your life-
In the book that you are writing?

Oh, are you writing deeds of love,
Of holiness and grace?
And do they see the peace of God
Illuminate your face? [Refrain]

Do you desire that men shall think
That God is what you say?
Or that a man who lives like you
Is on the narrow way? [Refrain]

Oh, write upon your daily page
A gospel that is true,
And that will lead a soul to God
If he shall follow you. [Refrain]
