1. "Repent, the kingdom draweth nigh
The herald of the Lord doth'cry.
Ye sin-ners, lost thru Adarns fall,
Will ye not harken to the call?

2. Repent, the gracious call believe
Haste His forgiveness to receive.
The Prince of Life, incamate Word,
Life and salvation can afford

3. Divine Redeemer, glorious King',
Repentant hearts to Thee we bring.
Thy holy blood for us was spilt,
Cleanse us from all the stains of guilt.

4. Drawn by Thy Spirit, through Thy word,
Thy invitation we have heard.
In answer to Thy sweet request
We come to Thee, O Christ, for rest.
