|LET every mortal ear attend,
And every heart rejoice;
The message of the Gospel sounds
With an inviting voice.
|2||Come now all hungry, starving souls
Who feed upon the wind,
And vainly strive with earthly things
To fill an empty mind.
|3||Eternal wisdom has prepared
A soul-converting feast,
And bids your longing appetites
His rich provisions taste.
|4||Come, all who long for living streams
Of life that cannot die,
Here you may quench your aching thirst
With springs that never dry.
|5||Saviour, the treasures of Thy love
Are everlasting mines,
Deep as our helpless miseries are,
And boundless as our sins.
|6||The door of pardoning love and grace
Stands open night and day;
Lord, we have come to seek supplies,
Deal now with us, we pray.
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748|
