1 The blessed voice of Jesus calls today,
Get right with God,
O will you not that blessed call obey?
Get right, get right with God.

Refrain:
Get right with God, get right today,
Get right with God, His voice obey,
Begin to walk the narrow way,
Get right, get right with God.

2 Your opportunities will soon be past,
Get right with God,
The day of mercy will not always last,
Get right, get right with God. [Refrain]

3 What can you hope to gain by serving sin?
Get right with God,
If you a crown of life expect to win,
Get right, get right with God. [Refrain]

4 Your life so brief will soon come to an end,
Get right with God,
Eternity is long—why not, my friend,
Get right, get right with God. [Refrain]
