1 The time is short!--sinners, beware!
Nor trifle time away;
The word of great salvation hear,
While yet 'tis called to-day.

2 The time is short!--O sinners, now
To Christ the Lord submit;
To mercy's golden scepter bow,
And fall at Jesus' feet.

3 The time is short!--ye saints, rejoice,
The Lord will quickly come:
Soon shall you hear the Saviour's voice,
To call you to your home.

4 The time is short!--it swiftly flies--
The hour is just at hand,
When we shall mount above the skies,
And reach the wished-for land.

5 The time is short!--the moment near,
When we shall dwell above;
And be for ever happy there,
With Jesus, whom we love.
