Lyrics

Today! O bless­èd word of hope,
And la­den still with Heav’n’s own breath;
The night is past—and has not come,
Between the shades life con­quers death.

Refrain

Today, if ye will hear His voice,
Today, if ye will hear His voice,
Harden not your heart,
Harden not your heart.

Light falls around the ru­ined soul,
The wind of God blows with new lust!
Fling back the shut­ters! Swing the door!
Answer God’s breath up­on thy dust.

Refrain

Then day shall ne­ver end in night,
But night be merged in per­fect day;
And all the forc­es of God’s life
Control thy life with migh­ty sway.

Refrain

But if thou hard­en still thy heart,
Today will van­ish in­to night,
The wind of God no long­er blow,
Life close in dark eclipse of light.

Refrain

Oh, bless­èd Mas­ter of To­day,
To Thee I yield my stub­born will;
Thou Sun of health, re­new my life;
And with Thy­self my be­ing fill.
