O do not let the Word depart

O do not let the Word depart,
And close thine eyes against the light:
Poor sinner, harden not your heart,
  Be saved, O tonight.
  O why not tonight?
O why not tonight?
Wilt thou be saved?
  Then why not tonight?
Tomorrow’s sun may never rise
To bless thy long-deluded sight;
This is the time, O then be wise,
  Be saved, O tonight.
Our Lord in pity lingers still,
And wilt thou thus His love requite?
Renounce at once thy stubborn will,
  Be saved, O tonight.
Our blessed Lord refuses none
Who would to Him their souls unite;
Believe on Him, the work is done.
  Be saved, O tonight.
