Representative Text

1 Oh, the wondrous grace of Christ,
Dying our souls to save!
For sinners lost, a gift unpriced,
Even his life he gave.

Refrain:
If we neglect this salvation free,
How can we hope to escape at last?
Now is the time, the accepted time,
Oh, come, ere the day is past.

2 No tomorrow dare we claim,
Now is his day of grace;
“None other name, none other name,”
Offers a hiding-place. [Refrain]

3 Why delay when Jesus calls,
Standing outside the gate?
Repent, believe, ere darkness falls,
Haste, for the hour grows late. [Refrain]

4 Peace and pardon, life and love,
Guidance along the way,
May now be yours from Christ above,
If you but come today. [Refrain]
