Do you hear the voice of God
As He calleth now to thee?
Hear Him speak in tenderest tones
As He calls to mercy free;
Oft He calls thee to His breast,
And He offers to thy soul,
Weary with its burden, rest, sweet rest.


There is a last chance for salvation,
Do you not hear Him tenderly calling—
Urgently calling, long He has waited,
Turn, O sinner, ere it is too late.

Many times the voice has come,
Calling thee from paths of sin;
Knocking at the heart’s door loud,
Pleading that you let Him in;
Yet you’ve turned Him from your heart,
By your sin you’ve barred the door;
You have caused the Spirit to depart.


Now’s the time to let Him in,
While He calls to thee today;
Open wide the heart’s door now,
Ere He turns from thee away;
All the lost souls now that die,
In the land of deep despair,
Let their last chance to be saved pass by.


Now I see my life’s mistake,
And I’m coming to the Lord,
It is now the time to come,
So I read His blessèd Word;
Now I come my heart to cast
At the blessèd Savior’s feet,
For I fear this chance will be the last.
