(Note especially the last verse. Anything else we need today other than that?)
The gospel brings tidings, glad tidings indeed,
To mourners in Zion, who want to be freed,
From sin and Satan, and Mount Sinais flame,
Good news of salvation, through Jesus the Lamb.
What sweet invitations, the gospel contains,
To men heavy laden, with bondage and chains;
It welcomes the weary, to come and be blessed,
With ease from their burdens, in Jesus to rest.
For every poor mourner, who thirsts for the Lord,
A fountain is opened, in Jesus the Word;
Their poor parched conscience, to cool and to wash,
From guilt and pollution, from dead works and dross.
A robe is provided, their shame now to hide,
In which none are clothed, but Jesus’ bride;
Though it be costly, yet is the robe free,
And all Zions mourners, shall decked with it be
