Representative Text

1 We never shall be happy if we walk the ways of sin,
‘Tis a path that leads onward to sorrow;
If the right we would pursue, it is time we should begin,
For why need we wait till tomorrow?

Refrain:
Let us seek salvation today, yes, today,
Seek salvation today;
If the crown we would secure,
We must make our calling sure,
And seek salvation today.

2 We’ll never get to heaven if we do not learn the way,
And prepare for the journey before us;
If for Jesus we would live, we must always watch and pray,
And thus will His banner be o’er us. [Refrain]

3 The tempter may assail us, but with Jesus by our side,
And a hope in His power possessing,
We will make His holy word still our counsel and our guide,
And count every trial a blessing. [Refrain]
