Representative Text

1 Now is the day of salvation,
The future no promise contains;
If mercy too often is slighted,
No hope for the sinner remains.

Hear, as he lovingly calleth,
Oh, harden no longer thy heart;
If thou shalt continue refusing,
Soon hope shall forever depart.

2 Open the door stands before thee,
The Spirit and bride bid thee come;
Give heed to their earnest entreaty,
Prepare for yon heavenly home. [Refrain]

3 When the great Master has risen—
And shut to the door—’tis too late;
In vain shalt thou pray him to open,
In vain hope to flee from thy fate. [Refrain]

4 Ages on ages unending,
No haven shall open for thee,
The blackness of darkness forever
The portion of sinners shall be. [Refrain]
