Representative Text

1 Don’t let it be said, too late, too late
To enter the kingdom fair,
That thou, all in vain, by the jeweled gate
Must wait in the darkness there.

Refrain:
Don’t let it be said, too late, too late,
Or, vain will thy pleadings be;
Be ready to enter the golden gate
While open it stands for thee.

2 Don’t let it be said, too late, O friend,
That thou must forever stand
Outside of the bright jasper walls for aye,
Shut out from the golden land. [Refrain]

3 Don’t let it be said, too late; but come,
There’s naught to win by delay;
Prepare then thy soul for its heav’nly home,
And enter the fold today. [Refrain]
