Representative Text

1 You have time for seeking earth’s treasures,
You have time for hoarding its gain,
You have time to revel in pleasures,
You have time in sin to remain.

No time for your Savior,
While years onward roll;
Soon time will be over,
And you, and you will have lost your soul.

2 You have time for each earthly trifle,
As on you carelessly plod,
But the voice of conscience you stifle
While you live and die without God. [Chorus]

3 You have time today, but tomorrow
May never be yours, my friend;
What a great unspeakable sorrow,
If your life without God you should end. [Chorus]
