If you know where to get a good pho­to of Zel­ley or Hughes (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Almost you’ve settled the question,
Solemnly counting the cost;
Listen today, turn while you may,
Almost may mean fully lost.


You are going down to judgment,
Going down to judgment,
Walking where the lost have trod;
O stop, just now, and think,
E’er you reach the awful brink,
Prepare to meet thy God.

Just on the threshold you’re standing:
Why do you still turn away?
Life is so dear, death is so near,
Come to the Savior today.


Soon you must make your decision,
Come, and no longer refuse;
Now while you may, choose life today,
Do not God’s mercy abuse.


Jesus has died to redeem you,
Offers you life thro’ His blood;
You must repent, or soon lament,
Banished forever from God.
