~ From The Old Paths ~


Can sinners hope for heaven,

Who love this world so well;

Or dream of future happiness,

While in the road to hell?


Shall they hosannas sing,

With an unhallowed tongue;

Shall psalms adorn the guilty hand

Which does its neighbor wrong?


Can sin’s deceitful way

Conduct to Zion’s hill;’

Or those expect with God to reign,

Who disregard his will?


Thy grace, O God, alone

Can a good hope afford;

The pardoned, faithful soul shall see

The glory of the Lord.
