1 The Master is coming, He calleth for thee,
And loved ones are hast’ning their Savior to see
He’s full of compassion, why will you delay?
He’s calling, still calling, oh, come, come today!

Calling oh, hear Him calling, still calling,
Why, O why will you delay?
Oh, hear Him calling, so sweetly calling, hear Him,
Hear the Master calling, come, oh, come today.

2 The Master is coming, receive Him and live;
Oh, will you not trust Him your sins to forgive?
On Calvary’s cross, amid anguish and pain,
Thy ransom was purchased with Jesus was slain. [Refrain]

3 The Master is coming, He calleth today;
Awake from thy slumbers, to labor and pray;
The morning is breaking, the noontide is near,
And evening’s dark shadows will quickly be here. [Refrain]

4 The Master is coming, to call from the grave
His loved ones to glory; He’s mighty to save;
And all who believe Him in rapture shall sing,
Salvation through Jesus, our Master and King. [Refrain]
