Let every mortal ear attend

Sacred Hymns (Manchester Hymnal) (1840, 1912), no. 2

1. Let every mortal ear attend, And every 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 joys To fill an empty mind.

3. Eternal wisdom has prepared A soul-reviving feast, And bids your longing appetites The rich provision taste.

4. Ho! ye that pant for living streams, And pine away and die, Here you may quench your raging thirst With springs that never dry.

5. Rivers of love and mercy here In a rich ocean join; Salvation in abundance flows, Like floods of milk and wine.

6. The gates of glorious Gospel grace Stand open night and day; Lord, we are come to seek supplies, And drive our wants away.
