Don't Wait Too Long

Representative Text

1 O soul, why stay away from Jesus,
Don't wait too long;
Decide today and come repenting,
O soul don't wait too long!

O soul don't wait too long!

2 Today may be the last one given,
Don't wait too long;

O soul don't wait too long! [Refrain]

3 While we in love for you are praying,
Don't wait too long;
Accept His Word and come obeying,
O soul don't wait too long! [Refrain]
