Hymn 217 - "Why unbelieving?  Why wilt thou spurn"


Why unbelieving?   Whywilt thou spurn

Love that so gently pleads thy return?

Come, ere thy fleeting day

Fades into night away;

Now mercy's call obey:

To Jesus come.



Why not, believing, come to the Lord?

Trust in the Saviour, doubt not His word.

Think, 'twas for thee He died;

Think of Him crucified!

Now to the Glorified, To Jesus come.



Why unbelieving? thou canst be blest,

Jesus will pardon, He'll give thee rest.

Why wilt thou longer wait?

Haste to the open gate;

Come, ere it be too late,

To Jesus come!
