03. THIS IS YOUR HOUR

Lo! now is the accepted time!
Heed thou God's call to-day!
E'en while we sing salvation's hour
Glides noiselessly away.

Give heed, for that one hour misused
Thine endless doom decides;
On Him, who such salvation spurns,
The wrath of God abides.

More dread the punishment must fall
When mercy's day is o'er,
Upon that man with whom God's love
Most patiently forbore.

Take heed unto thyself, my soul;
To hoard thy sin relent;
Behold yon quickly westering sun;
Delay no more; repent.

Perchance the hour of grace divine
This night may pass away.
Dear pardoning Lord, we leave our sin,
We come to Thee, to-day.
