Sinners, turn; why will ye die?

MHB 327

1.SINNERS,turn;why will ye die?
God, your Maker, asks you why:
God, who did your being give,
Made you with Himself to live;
He the fatal cause demands,
Asks the work of His own hands:
Why, ye thankless creatures,
why Will you cross His love, and die?

2.Sinners, turn; why will ye die?
God, your Saviour, asks you why :
God, who did your souls retrieve,
Died Himself, that you might live;
Will you let Him die in vain?
Crucify your Lord again?
Why, ye ransomed sinners,
why Will you slight His grace, and die?

3.Sinners, turn; why will ye die?
God, the Spirit, asks you why :
He who all your lives hath strove,
Wooed you to embrace His love;
Will you not His grace receive?
Will you still refuse to live?
Why, ye long-sought sinners, why
Will you grieve your God, and die?
