Abstract

I See! how the nations rage together, Seeking of each other's blood; See how the scriptures are fulfilling! Sinners, awake and turn to God. 2 We see the fig-tree budding; You that in open ruin lie, Behold the leaves almost appearing, Awake! behold your end is nigh. 3 We read of wars, and great commotions, To come before that dreadful day; Sinners, quit your sinful courses, And trifle not your time away. 4 Consider now the desolation, And the shortness of your time; Since there's none but a dark ocean, For all that don't repent in time, 5 Ye ministers that wait on preaching , Teachers and exhorters too, Don't you see your harvest wasting , Arise, there is no rest for you , 6 0 think upon that strict commandment. God has on his teachers laid : The sinner's blood that dies unwarned , Shall fall upon the teacher's head. 7 Arise dear b1·ethren, let's be doing, See the nations in distress ; The Lord of hosts forbid their ruin, Before their day of grace is past.
