Careless soul, why will you linger?Wandering from the fold of God?Hear you not the invitation?O prepare to meet thy God.
Careless soul, O heed the warning,For your life will soon be gone;O how sad to face the judgmentUnprepared to meet thy God.
Why so thoughtless are you standingWhile the fleeting years go by,And your life is spent in folly?O prepare to meet thy God.
Hear you not the earnest pleadingsOf your friends that wish you well?And perhaps before tomorrowYou’ll be called to meet your God.
If you spurn the invitationTill the Spirit shall depart,Then you’ll see your sad condition,Unprepared to meet thy God.
