Listen to the Tune

1. O do not let the Word depart,
And close thine eyes against the light,
Poor sinner, harden not your heart,
Be saved, O tonight.

O why not tonight? O why not tonight?
Wilt thou be saved? Then why not tonight?

2. Tomorrow's sun may never rise,
To bless thy long deluded sight;
This is the time, O then be wise,
Be saved, O tonight.

3. Our Lord in pity lingers still,
And wilt thou thus His love requite?
Renounce at once thy stubborn will,
Be saved, O tonight.

4. Our blessed Lord refuses none
Who would to Him their souls unite;
Believe, obey, the work is done,
Be saved, O tonight.
