There's a solemn call from the voiceless dead

There's a solemn call from the voiceless dead

Author: Tillit S. Teddlie
Tune: [There's a solemn call from the voiceless dead]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 There's a solemn call from the voiceless dead,
To the soul in sin reposed;
'Tis an awful cry from a soul condemned,
With the door of mercy closed.

Chorus:
Will the door be closed?
Will the door of mercy be closed?
When you stand before God in the judgment,
Will the door of mercy be closed?

2 Are you drifting on from the Father's house
To the darts of sin exposed?
To the sad, sad night of remorse and gloom,
With the door of mercy closed? [Chorus]

3 Will you turn away from the downward course,
Where death is self-imposed?
Will you turn to God, or reject His love?
Will the door for you be closed? [Chorus]
