Representative Text

1 The last call of mercy now lingers for thee;
O sinner, receive it; to Jesus now flee!
He often has called thee, but thou hast refused;
His offered salvation and love are abused.

2 O slight not the warning now offered at last,
Till summer is ended and harvest is past;
Till mercy, long slighted, has left thy heart's door,
And pardon, sweet pardon is offered no more.

3 While Jesus is calling, O turn not away;
For swiftly approaches the dread Judgment day:
The Spirit invites you, O why will you roam?
Come now to life's waters, ye thirsty ones, come.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
