Poor Esau Repented Too Late



Poor Esau repented too late

That once he his birth-right despised;

And sold, for a morsel of meat,

What could not too highly be prized:

How great was his anguish when told,

The blessing he sought to obtain,

Was gone with the birth-right he sold,

And none could recall it again!



He stands as a warning to all,

Wherever the Gospel shall come;

O hasten and yield to the call,

While yet for repentance there’s room!

Your season will quickly be past,

Then hear and obey it today;

Lest when you seek mercy at last,

The Savior should frown you away.



What is it the world can propose?

A morsel of meat at the best!

For this are you willing to lose

A share in the joys of the blest?

Its pleasures will speedily end,

Its favor and praise are but breath;

And what can its profits befriend

Your soul in the moment of death?



If Jesus for these you despise,

And sin to the Savior prefer;

In vain your entreaties and cries,

When summoned to stand at His bar:

How will you His presence abide?

What anguish will torture your heart?

The saints all enthroned by His side,

And you be compelled to depart.



Too often, dear Savior, have I

Preferred some poor trifle to Thee;

How is it Thou dost not deny

The blessing and birth-right to me?

No better than Esau I am,

Though pardon and Heaven be mine;

To me belongs nothing but shame,

The praise and the glory be Thine.
