Scripture Verse

If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Hebrews 10:26–27

Lyrics

With marvelous patience
Has Jesus been standing,
Again and again at
The door of thy heart;
He will not be always
Thus scorned and rejected,
But, wearied and grieved, may
Forever depart.
There’ll come a last time,
A last time, friend;
Thy season of grace will be o’er;
There’ll come a last time,
There’ll come a last time,
And mercy will knock no more.

The Savior who died on
The cross to redeem thee,
As thy intercessor
Imploringly stands;
Thy case with the Father
He evermore pleadeth,
And points to the prints of
The nails in His hands.
There’ll come a last time,
A last time, friend;
Thy season of grace will be o’er;
There’ll come a last time,
There’ll come a last time,
And Jesus will plead no more.

To higher attainments
The Spirit is calling,
And bids thee in fullness
Of blessing rejoice;
The years have gone by with
His calling unheeded,
And fainter and fainter
Now groweth His voice.
There’ll come a last time,
A last time, friend;
Thy season of grace will be o’er;
There’ll come a last time,
There’ll come a last time,
The Spirit will call no more.

Be warned of thy danger,
Accept of God’s mercy,
Lest, kindled against thee,
His anger should burn,
Lest justice prevail and
Thy season be over;
Then vain all thy efforts
To Christ to return.
There’ll come a last time,
A last time, friend;
Thy season of grace will be o’er;
There’ll come a last time,
There’ll come a last time,
Thy soul shall be lost evermore.
