Time is gliding swiftly by,
Death and judgment draweth nigh,
To the arms of Jesus fly,
Oh, you’d better now decide,
Mercy’s door is open wide;
Quickly turn from sin’s dark tide,
Don’t delay, but come to Jesus;
Don’t delay, for He will save you.
Children, Jesus now is calling,
Yes, He cries to one and all,
I will save you from the fall;
Haste, then, hearken to His call,
Children, seek the narrow way;
Youth and beauty soon decay;
Here you have not long to stay,
Then how sad will be your state,
If you’re left outside the gate,
And you hear the cry,
We’ve responded to the call;
Christ redeemed us from the fall,
And we’ll crown Him Lord of all,
Perfect victory have we,
Thro’ the blood of Calvary,
And from sin our souls are free,
