737. Too Late to Pray

1 Dear friends, the time is drawing near
When life shall pass away—
’Tis then too late for heav’n to start,
’Twill be too late to pray.

Refrain:
Too late, too late,
’Twill be too late to pray;
Too late, too late,
When life has passed away.

2 ’Twill be too late when Jesus comes
On that great judgment day,
To call His saints to their reward;
’Twill be too late to pray. [Refrain]

3 You have no promise of your life,
But death is on his way;
How sad ’twill be when Jesus says,
Too late, too late to pray. [Refrain]

4 We pray you now to heaven start,
Let Jesus lead your way;
Don’t wait ’til death is on your brow—
’Tis then too late to pray. [Refrain]
