1 WHY should I till to-morrow stay
For what thou wouldst bestow to-day,
What thou more willing art to give
Than I to ask, or to receive?
2 This moment, Lord, thou ready art
To break, and to bind up my heart,
To pour the balm of Gilead in,
Forgive, and take away my sin.
3 This is the time: I surely may
Salvation find on this glad day,
And knowing thee my Saviour prove
That thou art God, and God is love.
4 Give then the bliss for which I pray
To-day, while it is called to-day,
The nature pure, the life divine,
And make thy gracious fulness mine!
