…Before the New Year.
Call upon the LORD, dear saints,
Doing honor to His name;
Elevate the name of Jesus,
Finish your race without a stain.
God, the creator of us all,
Has called us to proclaim,
Imploring by the love He gives,
“Jesus Christ will save!”
Kiss the Son lest He be angry –
Lest He find you burning up;
More, the pity if you love sin –
Nothing will save a froward tongue!
Open up your door to Heaven,
Place your heart upon the sill;
Quiet all your rebel thinking,
Run to the door, He’s knocking still!
Say to Him, “Please forgive me?”,
Tell Him nothing – He’ll tell you;
Unless you’re found insincere, and
Vain is the word ‘Lord’ in His ear.
Welcome Him with trembling questions,
‘Xalt Him with this simple praise,
“You are the One we will wait for –
Zion rejoices in Your grace!”
