Representative Text

1 Sinner, turn, why will you linger,
Come beneath the chast’ning rod,
Come to Jesus, He will save you,
Oh, prepare to meet thy God.

Sinner, come and seek salvation!
In sin’s path too long you’ve trod,
You’ll be free from condemnation,
Oh, prepare to meet thy God!

2 Why so heedless are you waiting?
Soon you’ll go beneath the sod,
Soon you’ll pass to final judgment,
Oh, prepare to meet thy God. [Refrain]

3 Hear the Spirit’s voice now pleading,
Be ye reconciled to God,
Or you’ll have an awful ending,
Unprepared to meet thy God. [Refrain]

4 Should the Spirit cease its warning,
When sins path so long you’ve trod,
What a sad, eternal judgment,
Unprepared to meet thy God. [Refrain]
