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.

Refrain:
"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]
