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
