1 O sinner, the Saviour is calling for thee,
Long, long has he called thee in vain;
He called thee when joy lent its crown to thy days,
He called thee in sorrow and pain.

O turn, while the Saviour in mercy is waiting,
And steer for the harbor light;
For how do you know but your soul may be drifting
Over the dead-line tonight?

2 O sinner, thine ears have been deaf to his voice,
Thine eyes to his glory been dim;
The calls of thy Saviour have so wearied thee,
Oh, what if they should weary him? [Chorus]

3 O sinner, the Spirit is striving with thee;
What if he should strive never more,
But leave thee alone, in thy darkness to dwell,
In sight of the heavenly shore? [Chorus]

4 O sinner, God's patience may weary some day,
And leave thy sad soul in the blast;
By willful resistance you've drifted away,
Over the dead-line at last. [Chorus]
