Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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]
