Representative Text

1 "Today"! O blessed word of hope,
And laden still with Heav’n’s own breath;
The night is past—and has not come,
Between the shades life conquers death.

"Today," if ye will hear His voice,
Today, if ye will hear His voice,
Harden not your heart,
Harden not your heart.

2 Light falls around the ruined soul,
The wind of God blows with new lust!
Fling back the shutters! Swing the door!
Answer God’s breath upon thy dust. [Refrain]

3 Then day shall never end in night,
But night be merged in perfect day;
And all the forces of God’s life
Control thy life with mighty sway. [Refrain]

4 But if thou harden still thy heart,
Today will vanish into night,
The wind of God no longer blow,
Life close in dark eclipse of light. [Refrain]

5 Oh, blessed Master of Today,
To Thee I yield my stubborn will;
Thou Sun of health, renew my life;
And with Thyself my being fill. [Refrain]
