Representative Text

1 How rich is the mercy and grace of our Lord,
That offers us pardon today;
What kind invitations are found in His word
To turn from all evil away.

Refrain:
Why not give God your heart,
When not from sin depart,
While mercy is waiting and pardon is free,
O why not give God your heart.

2 Your heart may be full of rebellion today,
And captured by evil desire;
But why not surrender to Jesus and say:
“I’ll do what the Lord doth require.” [Refrain]

3 O squander no longer your God-given time,
Let Jesus redeem you from sin;
And serve Him with purposes strong and sublime,
A heart that is holy within. [Refrain]

4 How brief is the life that on earth you will spend,
How long is eternity’s night;
Consider your destiny, think of the end
And hasten just now to get right. [Refrain]
