David E. Dortch


Time is gliding swiftly by,
Death and judgment draweth nigh,
To the arms of Jesus fly,
Don’t delay.
Oh, you’d better now decide,
Mercy’s door is open wide;
Quickly turn from sin’s dark tide,
Don’t delay.


Don’t delay, but come to Jesus;
Don’t delay, for He will save you.
Children, Jesus now is calling,
Don’t delay.
Yes, He cries to one and all,
I will save you from the fall;
Haste, then, hearken to His call,
Don’t delay.

Children, seek the narrow way;
Youth and beauty soon decay;
Here you have not long to stay,
Don’t delay.
Then how sad will be your state,
If you’re left outside the gate,
And you hear the cry, Too late!
Don’t delay.


We’ve responded to the call;
Christ redeemed us from the fall,
And we’ll crown Him Lord of all,
Don’t delay.
Perfect victory have we,
Thro’ the blood of Calvary,
And from sin our souls are free,
Don’t delay.
