During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

20. The Judgment Day

1 Are you living for today,
With the future far away,
Knowing not that ere the night
Death may come and claim His right?
Then, I bid you stop and think
Ere you reach the awful bring,
For ‘twill then be all too late,
To avoid your certain fate!

Refrain:
Are you ready for the judgment day?
Are you ready for the judgment day?
Have you pardon full and free
Through the Saviour slain for thee?
Are you ready for the judgment day?

2 Have you turned away the Light,
Sought the darkness and the night,
Do you tread in error’s way,
And avoid the Saviour’s way?
Oh, beware! beware, I pray,
And the voice of God obey,
For to turn away the Light
Is to dwell in endless night. [Refrain]

3 Have you lost the sense of sin,
Silenced Conscience’s voice within,
Placed the judgment far away,
Fought the light and shunned the day?
You will meet in sin or grace,
Meet the Saviour face to face;
‘Tis for you the question when?
You must meet Him now or then. [Refrain]

4 Is it better then to sin
Than to have His peace within?
For the Saviour came to God,
Bending low beneath the rod—
Died for guilty sinners lost,
Paid the debt at fearful cost;
Oh, then come! no longer wait,
Ere forever ‘tis too late! [Refrain]
