The time is short! O ye, who bear Christs name,With unction from on highHis Gospel Truth with prayerful zeal proclaim.Redemption draweth nigh! Awaken all who idly slumber!Send heralds out in countless number. The time is short!The time is short! Unsheathe the Spirits sword.Salvations helmet wear.Await with joy the coming of your Lord.Yield not to dark despair. Let kingdoms fall and earth bonds sever,Gods "settled" Word abides forever. The time is short!The time is short! While moments still remainBring to Gods storehouse nowThe tithes of gold ere rust has left its stain.Oh bring in sweat of brow the gifts of toil and service.Christs holy law of love fulfilling. The time is short!The time is short! Sweet Advent Music swells,Oer hill and dale and plain.The pealing chime of Maranatha BellsHeralds His coming reign. Each day His bridal feast draws nearer Each day His Spirit whispers clearer: "The time is short"!
