Representative Text

1 “Some Day,” you say, “I will seek the Lord;
Some day I will make my choice;
Some day, some day, I will heed His word,
And answer the Spirit’s voice.”

Choose now, just now, for the Lord is here,
And angels your answer wait;
Choose now, just now, while the call is clear:
Tomorrow may be too late!

2 God’s time is now, for the days fly fast,
And swiftly the seasons roll;
Today is yours, it may be your last;
Choose life for your priceless soul! [Refrain]

3 Choose now, just now! there’s a soul at stake!
O what will your answer be?
‘Tis life or death; and the choice you make,
Is made for eternity. [Refrain]
