Full Text

1 Hear ye the moan of a soul that is lost,
O wretched sinner, that spirit is thine;
Jesus will enter thy bosom today,
Turning thy darkness to glory divine.

Refrain:
Jesus will save thee from darkness and woe,
He will redeem thee till whiter than snow.

2 Sinner, awake to the doom of thy soul,
Fettered by sin, and how soon you must die;
Fly to the Savior this moment, behold,
Jesus invites you to mansions on high. [Refrain]

3 Hark! From the garden and Calvary’s cross,
Voices that utter God’s wonderful love;
Value, poor sinner, thy soul at its cost,
Seek first its title to heaven above. [Refrain]

4 Think of eternity, oh, what a word!
Ages unending of darkness or day;
Where will you fix your eternal abode?
Take thy redemption ere life speeds away. [Refrain]

5 Past mercies slighted can never return,
Future recordeth no promise for thee;
Now is the day of salvation we learn,
Now is the moment, oh, come and be free. [Refrain]
