047. NOT IN THE HOUR OF DEATH

Christ in Song,

1.
Not in the hour of death,
Not when the pulse is low,
Not with the failing breath,
Not when you fear to go;

Refrain:
Come to Him now, come.
Come to Him now.
Jesus can save,
O come to him now;
Jesus will save,
O come to him now.

2.
Not when the frost of time 
Has changed the gold to gray;
Come in the golden prime
Of manhood's summer day.  [Refrain]

3.
Not when the noon of care
Has robbed the flow'rs of dew;
Come in the morning fair,
Of life's glad springtime new.  [Refrain]
