INVITATION
258
2  God calling yet! and shall He knoc And I my heart the closer lock? He still is waiting to receive,
And shall I dare His Spirit grieve?
3  God calling yet! and shall I give No heed, but still in bondage live?
,          I wait, but He does not forsake;
He calls me still; my heart, awake!
4 God calling yet! I cannot stay; My heart I yield without delay: Vain world, farewell, from thee I part; The voice of God hath reached my heart.
Gerhard Tersteegen, 1730. Tr. by Jane Borthwick, 1S53

2   0 soul, bowed down with harrowing care, Hast thou no thought for heaven to spare? From earthly toils lift up thine eye; Behold, the Master passeth by!
3   One heard Him calling long ago, And straightway left all things below,
Counting His earthly gain as loss For Jesus and His blessSd cross.
God gently calls us every day: Why should we then our bliss delay? Thou, Lord, e'en now art calling me; I will leave all, and follow Thee.
Bishop William W. How, alt. 1871
