Representative Text

1 O come unto the Saviour, for why will you delay?
The Spirit now invites you, O do not turn away;
The door is open now, but it will be closed at last,
For the summer will be ended, and the harvest will be past.

Chorus:
O come, sinner, come! for thy sands are running fast;
Soon the summer will be ended, and the harvest will be past.

2 O come unto the Saviour, He’s merciful and true,
A full and free salvation, He kindly offers you;
O come while yet you may, or you’ll find it true at last
That the summer time is ended, and the harvest time is past. [Chorus]

3 O come unto the Saviour, the night is coming on,
There’s danger in delaying, for the Spirit may be gone;
He’s waiting to release you from the chains that sin has cast,
Ere the summer time is ended, and the harvest time is past. [Chorus]

4 O come unto the Saviour, nor let Him plead in vain,
There is a crown of glory, and eternal life to gain;
His offers now accept, ere the sky is overcast,
Or the summer time is ended, and the harvest time is past. [Chorus]
