1 Have you ever closed your heart
To the Savior’s tender claim?
Have you ever taken part
With the world against His name?
Lo! He calls for your repentance;
Now, poor wand’rer, tempest tossed,
Hear the Master’s solemn message:
"Come repent, or you are lost."
2 Have you heard how Jesus died
On the cross that you might live?
Have you scorned the crimson tide
Which eternal life can give? [Refrain]
3 Why in blindness do you wait,
Wand’ring farther from the light,
Loving things which you should hate,
Sinking deeper into night? [Refrain]
4 Soon the summer days will go,
And the harvest time be past,
Then will cease His pleading low,
And your doom be sealed at last. [Refrain]
5 Oh, the tree that bears no fruit
Cannot always cum’bring grow,
For His blade will smite the root,
And its beauty be laid low. [Refrain]
