Through A World Base And Craven


Through a world base and craven,
In sorrow, not song;
Down a path rough and thorny,
We hurry along,
Through a life that is weary
With suff’ring and wrong,
Down to death comes the sinner,
But hope there is none.

Refrain:
Give your heart unto Jesus,
Give your heart unto Jesus,
When temptations assail you,
A friend He will be.

For a heart sad and weary,
To Jesus denied;
For a mind that is careless
What evils betide,
For a soul that is precious
But cannot decide,
The dear loving Jesus
Has bled and has died. [Refrain]

In the day of the Father,
The ransom’d shall sing;
In the dark hour of dying,
O what can you bring
To the Lord, there in heaven,
That you may go in,
To His house there abiding,
Always free from sin. [Refrain]
