1 “I’ve missed it at last,” he repeated,
While the shades of despair gathered fast;
“My hopes are forever defeated,
I have missed, I have missed it at last!”

Refrain:
“I’ve missed it at last, missed salvation,
From the pure and the holy outcast;
Nevermore peace to feel, but damnation—
I’ve missed, I have missed it at last.”

2 “The thief on the cross, I remember,
Ne’er refused till the summer was past,
And now in death’s chilling December,
I have missed, I have missed it at last! [Refrain]

3 “I’ve sold out my soul for a feather,
No hope in the whirlwind’s fierce blast;
I’m undone forever and ever,
I have missed, I have missed it at last!” [Refrain]

4 “The Spirit, insulted, resisted,
Still plead till the die I had cast,
I said ‘Go Thy way,’ I insisted;
He went, I have missed it at last!” [Refrain]

5 He buried his face in the pillow,
With horror his soul all aghast;
And back from eternity’s billow,
He shrieked, I have missed it at last!” [Refrain]
