"THIS IS YOUR HOUR"

Hallgrim Petursson (1614-1674)

8.6.8.6

23

Lo! now is the accepted time!

Heed thou God's call to-day!

E'en while we sing salvation's hour

Glides noiselessly away.

Give heed, for that one hour misused

Thine endless doom decides;

On Him, who such salvation spurns,

The wrath of God abides.

More dread the punishment must fall

When mercy's day is o'er,

Upon that man with whom God's love

Most patiently forbore.

Take heed unto thyself, my soul;

To hoard thy sin relent;

Behold yon quickly westering sun;

Delay no more; repent.

Perchance the hour of grace divine

This night may pass away.

Dear pardoning Lord, we leave our sin,

We come to Thee, to-day.
