1 When the Lord shall come to call you,
Whether it be noon or night,
And the hand of death enthrall you,
Shut your eyes from earthly light.

Refrain:
Will the pearly gates be open,
Will the Saviour meet you there,
Shall you be among the ransom’d
And their glorious portion share?

2 Midst the busy whirl of pleasure,
Soft, but yet distinctly heard,
Come the sounds with steady measure,
List, and heed the warning word. [Refrain]

3 By the ever pressing hurry
Of the sins which conscience drown,
In a life of toil and worry,
Do not put the question down. [Refrain]

4 Seek the Saviour, you shall find him,
He will take your sins away,
You can answer then the question,
Tho’ it comes by night or day. [Refrain]
