1 Why art thou waiting till another day,
Grieving the Saviour from thy heart away?
There is no refuge for the soul but he;
Wilt thou reject him, and a wanderer be?

Refrain:
One more message hast thou heard in vain?—
One more warning o’er thy life-time pass’d!—
What shall it profit, though the world thou gain,
If thou shalt lose thy soul at last?

2 Why art thou waiting and the door so near?
Why art thou turning from a friend so dear?
Think of the mercy he has bought for thee;
Wilt thou refuse it, and a wanderer be? [Refrain]

3 Why art thou waiting till another hour?
Break from the fetters of the tempter’s power;
Fly from the pleasures that are light as air,
Come to the shelter of the Saviour’s care. [Refrain]

4 Why art thou waiting when he bids thee come?
Why art thou staying from a father’s home?
Oh, there’s a welcome in that home for thee,
Wilt thou refuge is, and a wanderer be? [Refrain]
