Representative Text

1 “Some Day,” you say, while Jesus pleads,
“I'll come and fill my soul's deep need.”
Come while the Spirit intercedes—
“Some day” may be too late.

Refrain:
“Some day” may be too late,
For death may shut the vineyard gate;
The time is now, this very hour,
“Some day” may be too late.

2 The precious time is speeding fast;
Let all your wand’ring days be past;
On Jesus now your burden cast—
“Some day” may be too late. [Refrain]

3 You know that evil does not pay,
You know you need a friend today;
Then, why from Jesus turn away?—
“Some day” may be too late. [Refrain]

4 You do not wish to lose your soul;
Then, why let sin your life control?
Come home, come home, be glad and whole—
“Some day” may be too late. [Refrain]

5 You cannot save yourself, my friend,
On God's great son you must depend;
Come now, while arms of love extend;—
“Some day” may be too late. [Refrain]
