Prepare to Meet Thy God

I.
Careless soul, why will you linger,
Wand’ring from the fold of God?
Hear you not the invitation?
O prepare to meet thy God,

Chorus:
Careless soul, O careless soul,
O heed the warning, heed the warning,
For your life will soon be gone, will soon be gone;
O yes, your life will soon be gone;
O how sad to face the judgment, to face the judgment,
O how sad to face the judgment,
Unprepared, unprepared to mee thy God, to meet thy God.

II.
Why so tho’tless are you standing
While the fleeting years go by,
And your life is spent in folly?
O prepare to meet thy God.

(Back to Chorus)

III.
Hear you, not the earnest pleadings
Of your friends who wish you well?
And perhaps before tomorrow
You’ll be called to meet your God.

(back to Chorus)

IV.
If you spurn the invitation
Till the Spirit shall depart,
Then you’ll see your sad condition,
Unprepared to meet thy God.

(Back to Chorus)
