“Missionary Gems” — A collection of short poems
Compiled from various sources — Gospel Trumpet Company
Weep for the lost! Thy Savior wept
O’er ‘Salem’s hapless doom;
He wept to think their day was past,
And come their night of gloom.
Weep for the lost ! The prophets wept
O’er Israel’s gloomy fate;
When vengeance had unsheathed her sword,
Repentance came too late.
Weep for the lost! Apostles wept
That men should error choose;
That dying men should Christ reject
And endless life refuse.
Weep for the lost! The lost will weep
In that long night of woe,
On which no star of hope will rise,
And tears in vain will flow.
Weep for the lost! Lord, make us weep,
And toil with ceaseless care
To save our friends, ere yet they pass
That point of deep despair.
