34. Have You Thought of Heaven?

1. Sinner, have you thought of heaven,
Of that home prepared for you?
Have you heard that there are given
Crowns of life for all the true?

Sinner, will you go to heaven?
In this world you cannot stay.
Don't neglect so great salvation,
Come to God this very day.

2. Hark! "Behold! I set before thee,
Saith thy Maker's loving voice;
Good and evil but command thee,
Make my Kingdom now thy choice."

3. Jesus said that there are mansions,
And you know the tidings well;
Why then travel toward destruction,
In the way that leads to hell?

4. Sinner, do you not remember,
Of your bosom sighed within
For that home at last to enter?
Yet alas! you dwell in sin.

5. O to think of souls immortal,
Standing on an inch of time;
Hell and Heaven for thee grapple,
Fate abides that will of thine.
