Let Every Mortal Ear Attend

Let Every Mortal Ear Attend  (1835) 
by Isaac Watts

Let Every Mortal Ear Attend was included in the first Latter Day Saint Hymnal. The same song is found in Southern Harmony, first published September 1835. (See Gospel Trumpet (or Woodstock) for tune and text version found in Southern Harmony)

          HYMN 2. C. M.
 
 1 Let ev'ry mortal ear attend,
     And ev'ry heart rejoice;
   The trumpet of the gospel sounds
     With an inviting voice.
 
 2 Ho! all ye hungry, starving souls,
     That feed upon the wind,
   And vainly strive with earthly toys
     To fill an empty mind;
 
 3 The blessed Savior hath prepar'd
   And bid your longing appetites
     The rich provision taste.
 
 4 Ho! ye that pant for living streams,
     And pine away and die,
   Here you may quench your raging thirst
     With springs that never dry.
 
 5 Rivers of love and mercy here,
     In a rich ocean join;
   Salvation in abundance flows
     Like floods of milk and wine.
 
 6 The gates of florious gospel grace
     Stand open night and day:
   Lord, we are come to seek supplies,
     And drive our wants away.
