When blighting and sorrow shall

Full Text

1 When blighting and sorrow shall fall on your soul,
When skies shall be stormy and dark,
When wild flooding waters shall over you roll,
Oh will you be safe in the ark?

2 The Saviour has call’d you again and again,
Oh sinner stay not in your fight,
For sudden destruction shall come upon men,
As cometh a thief in the night.

3 Come sinner no longer your follies pursue,
Oh will you not haste to embark,
While Jesus is tenderly calling to you.
Come in—O come into the ark.
