463. Lent 3 (Series C)
Friends, balk not at the Lord's rebuke:
Would you that God the right forsook?
Nay, ready ear to warnings give;
Return to righteousness and live!
Turn, wicked ones! Why should you die?
The Lord no pleasure takes thereby.
Say not that His way is unfair,
Who them that turn to Him will spare.
Nor trust in your own righteousness,
Lest you return to sin and death.
God plays not favorites with men,
But them that turn restores again.
If you would walk in truth, submit
To wisdom taught by holy writ:
By baptism brought, as through the sea,
To eat and drink, right wondrously.
Eat, then, the Bread come from on high;
Drink of the Rock that runs not dry;
Which, if you heed the God-breathed page,
Is Christ, the same from age to age.
