Representative Text

1 Life is the time to prepare for death,
Then why not begin it today?
You’re only mortals on probate life,
Don’t idle your time away.

Refrain:
Don’t do that, don’t do that,
Don’t idle your time away;
Don’t do that, O don’t do that,
Don’t idle your time away.

2 Hear the glad shouts of the newborn souls,
In praising their Savior today,
While you stand idly the whole day long,
Still wasting your time away? [Refrain]

3 Sinners, come now and accept the call,
While Jesus is pleading today;
He will receive you into His fold;
Don’t idle your time away. [Refrain]

4 Christ the Redeemer is waiting now
To cleanse and receive you today;
Come and fall humbly before the cross,
Don’t idle your time away. [Refrain]
