I knew there was no time to waste
When heaven extended God's favor.
I thought on my ways and made haste,
Receiving the Lord as my Savior!
The broad way to hell has been paved
With fair words of sinful seduction.
There's only one way to be saved:
Christ rescues our soul from destruction!
The Lord calls the lost to find rest,
Refreshment, and refuge from fear.
All those who receive Him are blest,
Yet fools simply choose not to hear.
From heaven, O Lord, You were sent
To purchase so great a salvation:
All those who will haste to repent
Shall rest in Your justification.
