Let not these thy people join,
Jesus, and him crucified.
Till they sink in their own eyes,
Lay their honours at thy feet. 6 Never let the world break in,
Fix a mighty gulf between;

Each the other's burden bear,
Show how true believers live.
Let us thus in God abide;

For him, your Lord, appear. 2 Stay not within the wilderness,
Nor waiting at the door;
Were they ten thousand more.
Yield to the Saviour's voice;
O make the blissful choice!

And room in heaven above. 5 Why will you longer lingering stay,
When Jesus says, “there's room ?
