Representative Text

Oh, why will you go away tonight,
Unsaved and rejecting the Lord?
Why grope in the darkness, refusing the light,
No hope of a blessed reward?

Chorus:
You’re going away unsaved!
You’re going away unsaved,
While pardon is free,
Dear sinner, for thee,
You’re going away unsaved.

Oh, why will you go away tonight,
Not heeding the Spirit’s sweet call?
This may be your last invitation; then come,
There’s room and a welcome for all.

Oh, why will you go away tonight,
To wander in sin’s deepest gloom?
Oh, come, ere the Spirit forsake thee in flight,
And leave you to comfortless doom.

Oh, why will you go away tonight,
You’re hard’ning your heart by delay!
Refusing the joys of yon heaven so bright;
Oh, why are you going away?
