1 Dear friends, the time is drawing near
When life shall pass away—
’Tis then too late for heav’n to start,
’Twill be too late to pray.

Too late, too late,
’Twill be too late to pray;
Too late, too late,
When life has passed away.

2 ’Twill be too late when Jesus comes
On that great judgment day,
To call His saints to their reward;
’Twill be too late to pray. [Refrain]

3 You have no promise of your life,
But death is on his way;
How sad ’twill be when Jesus says,
Too late, too late to pray. [Refrain]

4 We pray you now to heaven start,
Let Jesus lead your way;
Don’t wait ’til death is on your brow—
’Tis then too late to pray. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
