1 What is your prospect, O sinner,
Have you a good hope thro’ grace?
When you have finished life’s journey,
When you meet God face to face?

What will you say to Him then?
If you a rebel have been,
When you shall meet the Judge of all men,
What will you say to Him then?

2 What is your prospect, O sinner,
What if the world you should gain?
If you have lived just for pleasure,
And you shall die in your sin? [Refrain]

3 What is your prospect, O sinner,
If you persist in your sin:
You will be lost—and in silence,
Face the great Judge of all men. [Refrain]

4 What is your prospect, O sinner?
There is but one thing to do;
Turn from your sin and trust Jesus,
He is the Savior for you. [Refrain]
