1 Should the Death Angel knock at thy chamber,
In the still watch of tonight,
Say, will your spirit pass into torment,
Or to the land of delight?

Say, are you ready? O are you ready?
If the Death Angel should call, (should call,)
Say, are you ready? O are you ready?
Mercy stands waiting for all.

2 Many sad spirits now are departing
Into the world of despair;
Ev'ry brief moment brings your doom nearer;
Sinner, O sinner, beware! [Chorus]

3 Many redeemed ones now are ascending
Into the mansions of light;
Jesus is pleading, patiently pleading,
Oh, let Him save you tonight. [Chorus]
