Representative Text

1 On the resurrection morning,
When you hear the trumpet’s warning;
Too late, ‘twill be too late.
To then turn and seek salvation,
But you’ll meet with condemnation,
Too late, forever too late.

Too late,
Too late.
You have missed your life eternal,
You have missed the joys supernal.
Too late, forever too late.

2 Soon God’s solemn proclamation,
Will go forth to every nation;
Too late, ‘twill be too late.
Then what weeping, wailing, sorrow,
For there’ll be no glad tomorrow,
Too late, forever too late. [Refrain]

3 You have shunned redemption’s story,
And have lost your home in glory;
Too late, ‘twill be too late.
For your doom is sealed forever,
From the good you then will sever,
Too late, forever too late. [Refrain]

4 Let there be no hesitation,
Turn to Jesus, seek salvation;
Too late, ‘twill be too late.
Then before the judgement morning,
Will you heed this solemn warning,
Too late, forever too late. [Refrain
