Timely Tidings

"As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me... Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice... Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and He shall sustain thee" (Psalm 55:16-22).  "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me... to preach the gospel to the poor... to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord" (Luke 4:18,19). 

There is a time acceptable
To call upon the Savior's name,
Receiving Him who saves our soul
And takes away our sin and shame.

At evening, morning, or at noon
Our Lord will hear the sinner pray,
But let that cry be lifted soon,
For there is danger in delay!

The Lord's accessibility
Is yet before we reach the grave. 
It is too late eternally
To wait till death for God to save.

In due time, Lord, You came to reach
And save us from our lost estate.  
With timely tidings now we preach,
Persuading sinners not to wait.
