Representative Text

1. Oh, what wilt thou do when the night cometh on,
When daylight is fading and hope nearly gone;
When fears shall oppress thee, and dark billows roll,
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul?

Refrain
What wilt thou do? What wilt thou do?
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul?

2. Oh, what wilt thou do when the tide riseth high,
When life is departing and death draweth nigh;
The vain things of earth have no pow’r to console;
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul? [Refrain]

3. Oh, what wilt thou do in the great judgment day,
When Heaven and earth shall have all passed away;
When thy doom is sealed and the death knell shall toll,
Oh, tell me, what then wilt thou do with thy soul? [Refrain]

4. Oh, fly to the refuge, while still there is time,
While God offers pardon and healing divine;
There, safe in that shelter, sweet peace shall control;
For then evermore ’twill be well with thy soul.

Haste while there’s time, haste while there’s time,
For then evermore ’twill be well with thy soul.
