“Repent” the voice celestial cries,
Nor longer dare delay;
The wretch that scorns the mandate dies,
And meets a fiery day.
No more the sov’reign eye of God
O’erlooks the crimes of men;
His heralds are dispatched abroad
To warn the world of sin.
The summons reaches thru the earth;
Let earth attend and fear:
Listen, ye men of royal birth,
And let your vassals hear.
