1 The Master stands outside the door,
He calls as oft He’s call’d before;
Why suffer Him to longer wait?
Tomorrow may be too late.

Tomorrow may be too late,
Tomorrow may be too late;
O come today, turn not away,
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow may be too late.

2 There is no joy so full, complete
As that to sit at Jesus’ feet;
Why not accept this high estate?
Tomorrow may be too late. [Refrain]

3 The day into the past is gone,
This moment only is thine own;
Turn now thy face t’ward heaven’s gate,
Tomorrow may be too late. [Refrain]
