1 Christ, or the world!
Which shall it be?
Choose for time and eternity;
Here’s a refuge, a rest, a home
There are torments and wrath to come,
Why a wanderer longer roam?
I and my house will serve the Lord;
If we prove faithful,
We shall have great reward.
2 Christ, or the world!
Which will ye seek?
Let the awak’ning conscience speak;
There are mansions so bright and fair,
Where, beloved and kindred are,
Will you meet with them over there? [Refrain]
3 Christ, or the world!
Which bringeth peace?
Worldly pleasures or holiness?
Why continue ‘mid doubt and fear?
Why not go to the Saviour dear?
Be assured of a welcome there. [Refrain]
4 Christ, or the world!
There is danger in more delay;
Soon will vanish the gospel light,
And the spirit will take its flight,
Then will issue eternal night. [Refrain]
