Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Brother, heed the warning cry,
O’er and o’er repeating,
Death and woe are drawing nigh
As your pulse is beating.

Brother, make a start for Heaven now;
Hear the invitation given now;
Tomorrow may be never,
And woe your portion ever!
Brother, make a start for Heaven now!
Just now, just now.

2 Brother can you heedless hear,
How the Savior suffered?
How that groans and blood and tears
Bought the pardon offered? [Refrain]

3 Life you feel in every vein,
Think you death’s retreating?
You forget that grain by grain
Life and time are fleeting. [Refrain]
