It’s Getting Late!
By June Stein
Dear Lord, it’s getting late,
With darkness closing in,
But in Your Light, there still is time,
To purge the world’s great sin,
For those who recognize,
Their sorry, sinful state,
Your Mercy and Your Love are here,
And it is not too late!
Now anyone who seeks,
Will find Your saving Grace,
For them, You sacrificed Your Life,
That in You, they may live,
Your arms are open wide,
Just waiting to receive,
May there now be a sweeping tide,
Of souls who will believe.
That tide will carry them,
Into Your arms of Love,
And they will live forevermore,
With You in Heaven above,
Such wondrous Love, dear Lord,
We cannot understand,
We bask in Your Amazing Grace,
You hold us in Your Hand!
Although it’s getting late,
In You, we find all joy,
To honor Your great Glory, Lord,
Your gifts in us employ,
Receive our worship now,
While we still live on earth,
Again, in Heaven above with You,
We’ll praise Your matchless Worth!
‘Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds;
and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.’
[Matthew 7:7-8 ]
