Lyrics

What is your prospect, O sinner,
Have you a good hope thro’ grace?
When you have finished life’s journey,
When you meet God face to face?

Refrain

What will you say to Him then?
If you a rebel have been,
When you shall meet the Judge of all men,
What will you say to Him then?

What is your prospect, O sinner,
What if the world you should gain?
If you have lived just for pleasure,
And you shall die in your sin?

Refrain

What is your prospect, O sinner,
If you persist in your sin:
You will be lost—and in silence,
Face the great Judge of all men.

Refrain

What is your prospect, O sinner?
There is but one thing to do;
Turn from your sin and trust Jesus,
He is the Savior for you.
