Full Text

1 The harvest is past and the summer is ended,
Alas, precious soul, this may be thy sad cry:
“The Spirit is gone I’ve so often offended,
And now with the lost I must perish and die.”

The harvest is past,
And I am not saved;
How fearful the cost
For a soul to be lost!

2 The harvest is past and the summer is ended,
The last call of mercy forever is gone,
And down to the regions of darkness eternal,
In anguish I take my sad journey alone. [Refrain]

3 The harvest is past and the summer is ended,
Refusing entreaties still harder I’ve grown;
Salvation I’ve slighted, and now, unforgiven,
I reap for my soul of the seed I have sown. [Refrain]

4 The harvest is past and the summer is ended,
Awaken, dear soul, ere it be thy sad moan;
The Savior is willing and waiting to save you,
Oh, come, ere His Spirit forever has flown. [Refrain]
