1 "In a moment when ye know not,"
Saith the Son of Man, I come;
If ye are not ready, waiting,
Awful fear will strike ye dumb.
Ye will stand before Me trembling,
Silent in your soul’s despair,
Thinking of unheeded warnings
That I gave you to prepare.
Are ye ready? are ye ready?
O my soul, delay no more;
Get ye ready for His coming
Ere the Lord is at thy door.
2 Soul, if thou shouldst hear Him knocking
Now, this moment, wouldst thou say,
Lo, the Lord is come, and gladly
Haste His summons to obey?
Ah, I fear in bitter anguish
Thou wouldst face a sinner’s fate,
Thou wouldst plead that one day longer,
Or an hour, the Lord would wait. [Refrain]
3 In a moment when ye know not!
Soul of man, no more delay;
Get ye ready for His coming,
Lest that coming be today.
Now—this hour—for when He cometh
Vainly thou wilt bid Him wait;
I have warned thee, He will answer,
Thou repentest all too late. [Refrain]
