If you know where to get a good pho­to of Vail (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Sinner, how thy heart is trou­bled,
God is com­ing ve­ry near;
Do not hide thy deep emo­tion,
Do not check that fall­ing tear.


O be saved, His grace is free;
O be saved, He died for thee;
O be saved, He died for thee.

Jesus now is bend­ing o’er thee,
Jesus low­ly, meek and mild;
To the friend who died to save thee,
Canst thou not be re­con­ciled?


Art thou wait­ing till the mor­row?
Thou may’st ne­ver see its light;
Come at once—ac­cept His mer­cy,
He is wait­ing—come to­night.


With a low­ly, con­trite spi­rit,
Kneeling at the Sav­ior’s feet;
Thou canst feel this ve­ry mo­ment,
Pardon—pre­cious, pure and sweet.


Let the an­gels bear the tid­ings,
Upward to the courts of Heav’n;
Let them sing, with holy rap­ture,
O’er an­oth­er soul for­giv’n.
