Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

33. The Last Call

1 The last call of mercy now lingers for thee,
O waiting and careless one, haste thee and flee;
Repent and believe, ere the harvest is past,
The call oft repeated is closing at last.

The last call of mercy, O turn not away,
But hasten and welcome the Savior today.

2 He called by the sermons where Sabbath light gleamed,
He called by the pleadings of God’s own redeemed,
He called while the family altar’s light burned,
He called, but his love thou hast cruelly spurned. [Refrain]

3 The Sabbath is ended, the sermon is done,
God’s last loving message has come to some one,
But Christ in his mercy still knocks at the door,
O welcome him now, or there’s pardon no more. [Refrain]

4 Escape for thy life, from the dark mountain, fly,
The angel of mercy is now passing by;
There’s safety, and pardon, and refuge for all,
Then slight not this warning, ‘tis mercy’s last call. [Refrain]
