186. Soon the Summer Will Be Ended

1 Grace is offered you, dear sinner,
In this gospel day of time,
Grace to save and keep from evil,
And to make your life sublime.

Refrain:
Soon the summer will be ended,
And the harvest will be o’er;
Soon the day of offered mercy
Will be past forevermore.

2 If you live and die a sinner,
And reject God’s offered grace,
You will cry for rocks and mountains,
Thus to hide you from His face. [Refrain]

3 While in life is time accepted
To prepare to meet the Lord,
Be assured that He is faithful
To fulfill His holy word. [Refrain]

4 Will this be your lamentation:
“Through neglect I’m lost at last,
For the summer now is ended,
And the harvest time is past”? [Refrain]
