1. Do you hear the voice of God
As He calleth now to thee?
Hear Him speak in tenderest tones
As He calls to mercy free;
Oft He calls thee to His breast,
And He offers to thy soul,
Weary with its burden, rest, sweet rest.

There is a last chance for salvation,
Do you not hear Him tenderly calling—
Urgently calling, long He has waited,
Turn, O sinner, ere it is too late.

2. Many times the voice has come,
Calling thee from paths of sin;
Knocking at the heart’s door loud,
Pleading that you let Him in;
Yet you’ve turned Him from your heart,
By your sin you’ve barred the door;
You have caused the Spirit to depart. [Refrain]

3. Now’s the time to let Him in,
While He calls to thee today;
Open wide the heart’s door now,
Ere He turns from thee away;
All the lost souls now that die,
In the land of deep despair,
Let their last chance to be saved pass by. [Refrain]

4. Now I see my life’s mistake,
And I’m coming to the Lord,
It is now the time to come,
So I read His blessèd Word;
Now I come my heart to cast
At the blessèd Savior’s feet,
For I fear this chance will be the last. [Refrain]

George A. LeClere, 19th Century Our only certain information on LeClere is that he was a minister. However, there is an interview with a Rev. George A. Leclere in Voices of the American West: The Settler and Soldier Interviews of Eli S. Ricker 1903-1919, by Richard E. Jensen, 2005, page 368. According to the interview, LeClere was living in Grand Junction, Colorado, in 1909, and had been in the Army in 1864.  Go to person page >
