"Oh God, here I am in this place of unrest
When others have entered into the land of the blest.
God's way of salvation was
preached unto men;
I heard it and heard it, again and again.
Why did I not
listen and repent of my sin
Turning to Jesus for forgiveness within?
vain earthly pleasures my soul did I sell—
The way I had chosen has brought
me to Hell.
I wish I were dreaming, but ah, it is true.
The way to be
saved I had heard and I knew;
My time on the earth, oh, so quickly fled
How little I thought of the day I would die.
When God's Holy Spirit
was pleading with me,
I hardened my heart and I turned from His plea.
way that was sinful, the path that was wide,
I chose and I walked till the
time that I died.
Eternally now, I must dwell in this place.
If I from my
memory could but erase
The thoughts of my past which are haunting me
Oh, where is a refuge to which I can go?
This torture and suff'ring,
how long can I stand?
For Satan and devils this only was planned.
refuge is Jesus, the One that I spurned;
He offered salvation, but from Him I
My brothers and sisters I wish I could warn.
Far better 'twould be
if I had not been born.
The price I must pay is too horrid to tell—
life without God led directly to Hell."
Oh, soul without Christ, will these
words be your cry?
God's Word so declares it that all men must die.
Hell and its terrors, Oh, flee while you may!
So, come to the Savior; He'll
save you today!
