Shall I Die Without a Savior?

Representative Text

1 Shall I die without a Savior?
Shall I lose my precious soul?
Shall I cross death’s chilly river?
Shall I miss yon brighter goal?

Shall I gain a home in heaven?
Shall I live in sin below?
Lose my crown, my soul, and mansion,
And go down to endless woe?

2 Shall I die without a Savior?
Shall I hear His voice no more?
Shall I let my heart grow harder?
Shut myself from mercy’s door? [Refrain]

3 Shall I die without a Savior?
Perish when I see the light?
Still neglecting, doomed forever,
Banished to the darkest night? [Refrain]

4 Shall I die without a Savior?
Perish just in sight of home?
And be lost, yea, lost forever,
Reach my awful, final doom? [Refrain]

5 Shall I die without a Savior?
And yet, hope to make a start?
Still refusing Him to enter,
And thus tighter lock my heart? [Refrain]
