Christ calling yet! shall I not hear

1
Christ calling yet! shall I not hear?
Earth’s pleasures shall I still hold dear?
Shall life’s swift passing years all fly,
And still my soul in slumber lie?
  Calling yet, oh, hear Him!
Calling yet, oh, hear Him!
Christ is calling yet;
Oh! hear Him calling, calling!
Calling yet, oh, hear Him!
Calling yet, oh, hear Him!
Christ is calling yet; oh, hear
    Him calling yet!
2
Christ calling yet! shall I not rise?
Can I His loving voice despise,
And basely His kind care repay?
He calls me still; can I delay?
3
Christ calling yet! and shall He knock,
And I my heart the closer lock?
He still is waiting to receive;
And shall I dare His Spirit grieve?
4
Christ calling yet! and shall I give
No heed, but still in bondage live?
I wait, but He does not forsake:
He calls me still; my heart, awake!
5
Christ calling yet! I cannot stay;
My heart I yield without delay;
Vain world, farewell! from thee I part;
The voice of Christ has reached my heart.

I really enjoy the stanza 5 of the hymn. Amen the Lord's voice has reached my heart and bid the vain world farewell. Hallelujah
