5 It’s my free will for to believe:
’Tis God’s free will me to receive:
To stubborn willers this I’ll tell,
It’s all free grace, and all free will.
 
6 Those that despise, grow harder still;
Those that adhere, he turns their will:
And thus despisers sink to hell,
While those that hear in glory dwell.
 
7 But if we take the downward road,
And make in hell our last abode:
Our God is clear, and we shall know,
We’ve plunged ourselves in endless wo.
 
Hymn 2 • Let ev’ry mortal ear attend
HYMN 2. C. M.
 
1 Let ev’ry mortal ear attend,
And ev’ry heart rejoice;
The trumpet of the gospel sounds
With an inviting voice.
 
2 Ho! all ye hungry, starving souls,
That feed upon the wind,
And vainly strive with earthly toys
To fill an empty mind;
 
3 The blessed Savior hath prepar’d
A soul-reviving feast, [p. 6]
