God's Timing for Good Tidings

"It is time for Thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void Thy law" (Psalm 119:126).  "As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger… As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country" (Proverbs 25:13,25).  "By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament… because He continueth ever… Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them" (Hebrews 7:22-25). 

The time has come, and time is short,
To do the work that God commands.
Though many scorn the Lord's report,
Results, at last, are in  His hands.   

The time has come for souls to choose
To turn from vain imagination
And to respond to God's good news
To trust in Christ and His salvation. 

The time has come hear the voice
Of Jesus Christ, the only Savior,
Who offers sinners now the choice
To find a refuge in His favor. 

How good Your timing is, O Lord!
How good Your tidings are, as well,
That, by Your grace, You now afford
The sinner an escape from hell.
