Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
Weeping sinners, dry your tears,
Jesus on His throne appears;
Mercy comes with balmy wings,
Bids you His salvation sing.

WEEPING sinner, dry your tears,, Stanza 1
Peace He brings you by His death,
Peace He speaks with ev'ry breath;
Can you slight such heav'nly charms?
Flee, oh, flee to Jesus' arms.
