If you know where to get a good pho­to of Grin­nell (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


O sinner, listen while you may,
For Christ can wash your sins away;
He bore them all upon the cross,
To save you from eternal loss.


Waiting, waiting,
Christ is waiting to save;
Waiting, waiting,
Christ is waiting to save.

Oh, come to Christ! do not delay,
But seek His pardon while you may;
Oh, come just now, and do not wait,
Until the Spirit says, Too late.


Just as you are, oh hasten now!
Confess your sins and humbly bow!
His mighty grace He will impart,
His blood will cleanse your sinful heart.


Oh! can it be you will refuse
To listen to such gracious news,
And shut your ears, and close your eyes,
And die the death that never dies?
