1 Shall I wait, until the sunset
Marks the close of life’s short day,
Ere I give my heart to Jesus,
And his word and truth obey?
No! I will remember Jesus
In this glad accepted hour;
Give myself unto his service,
Yield to his resistless power.
2 Shall I wait for manhood’s vigor;
Thinking that the world’s vain toy,
Will then fail to give me pleasure,
Or give place to other joys? [Refrain]
3 Shall I wait, until the morrow
Brings me nearer to the tomb;
When I know that death’s keen arrow
May before then seal my doom? [Refrain]Source: The Ark of Praise #53
