Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

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.

Refrain:
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 >
