1 Dear friends, I have a story to tell,
A story of woe, and despair;
My soul is doomed with demons to dwell—
I have waited too long to prepare.

Refrain:
I’ve waited too long
(I’ve waited too long),
I’ve waited too long to prepare.
I’ve anchored my soul to the sin cursed shore,
I’ve waited too long to prepare.

2 I’ve heard the story of Christ’s love,
The city so bright and so fair;
They bade me live for Heaven above,
But I’ve waited too long to prepare. [Refrain]

3 When friends would plead with me to come,
I turned them away without care;
And now thro’ mist and darkness I see,
I have waited too long to prepare. [Refrain]

4 Too long the Savior’s pointed the way,
And offered my burdens to share;
Alas, I’ve turned His kindness away!
Thus I’ve waited too long to prepare. [Refrain]

5 O sinner, hear this message to you,
’Tis filled with the words of despair;
And heed the call of warning today—
You are waiting too long to prepare. [Refrain]
