He Will Set Your Fields on Fire

There's a call that rings for the one that sings
To 4 those now gone a 1 stray
Saying come ye men with your load of sin
There 2 at the altar 5 lay
You don't 1 seem to heed at the chain of greed
Your 4 conscience never 1 tires
Be as- 4 sured my friend, if you 1 still offend
He will 2 set your 5 fields on 1 fire

Chorus, bass
If you don't from sin retire
He will set your fields on 5 fire
You have heard Jesus call
And in death your soul must 1 fall
Now my friend if you desire
You may join the heavenly 4 choir
And rejoice with him free from 1 every sin
When he 2 sets this 5 world on 1 fire

Chorus, harmony
If... you... don't retire...
Set... your... fields on fire...
You have heard... Jesus call...
Soon... your... soul must fall...
Friend... if... you desire...
Join... the... heavenly choir...
And rejoice with him free from every sin
When he sets this world on fire

You have heard his voice seen His soul rejoice
That trusted in his grace
You have blushed with sin as He knocked within
But still you hide your face
From the blessed Lord and His own true word
But still you say retire
Leave the downward path kindle not His wrath
Or He'll set your fields on fire
