—Speak earnestly","my sister, ; ■---- *
Thy Lord hath need of thee
To tell the triflers at thy side,
From coming wrath to flee ;
O tell them earnestly of Him
Whose truth shall make them free.
Speak warningly, my sister,
For days of grace may fly ;
There, who dear to thee, reject
The love which rules on high ;
Speak warningly, speak pleadingly,
The days are going by.
Speak loyally, my sister,
Nor blush the name to own
Of Him who intercedes for thee,
Exalted on the throne ;
Of Him who paid the utmost price
O q Calvary alone.
~ Speak fearlessly, my sister,
The Lord is on thy side ;
fhe Lord victorious o’er His foes,
Should challenge all thy pride.
Speak fearlessly and glowingly,
Nor shrink, though men deride.
Speak joyously, my sister,

Upon thy forehead worn.
Speak joyously, for Christ the King
Hath all thy Borrows borne.
Speak faithfully, my sister,
The Word is very plain,
It is not thine to alter it,
The Lord hath right to reign.
Speak dearly, too, my sister,
That far-off homes may hear,
And dawn arise and glory shine,
On heathen nations drear ;
O Bpeak the truth for Jesus’ sake.
Until His day appear.
