Come now, let us reason together:
Let us wash in the clear flowing pool;
Tho' our sins may be red like the scarlet,
They shall soon be as white as the wool.
Oh, trust in the Rock of salvation,
To redeem us from every woe;
Tho' our sins may be red like the crimson,
They shall be like the new driven snow.

Ah, shun the vile ways of the wicked,
That so long have offended the eyes;
Put away the dark spirit of evil,
That arises to blacken the skies.
Give relief to the orphan and widow;
Ever think, speak and do what is well;
Oh seek ye the right path of judgment,
Let oppression find no place to dwell.

For if now to obey ye be willing;
If in wisdom ye walk hand in hand;
Ye shall drink of the cool gushing fountain,
Ye shall eat the fair fruits of the land.
But if ye will refuse now to listen,
If as rebels ye still shall remain;
The mouth of the Lord it hath spoken;
By his vengeance ye all shall be slain.

Then come, let us reason together;
Woe to him who shall now disobey;
For each sin, whether open or secret,
Shall appear at the dread final day.
Let us wash every scarlet and crimson,
Under foot let the serpent be trod;
Then as peaceful we pass the dark river,
We may fly to the bosom of God.
