De-lay not, de-lay not,

O sinner draw near,

The waters of life are now flowing for thee;

No price is de-manded,

The Saviour is here,

Re-demption is purchased, sal-va-tion is free.

Delay not, delay not, why longer abuse

The love and compassion of Jesus our Lord?

A fountain is opened, how canst thou refuse

To wash and be cleansed in his pardoning blood?

Delay not, delay not, O sinner to come,

For mercy still lingers, and calls thee to-day;

Her voice is not heard in the vale of the tomb,

Her message, unheeded, will soon pass away.

Delay not, delay not, the spirit of grace,

Long grieved and resisted, entreats thee to come;

Beware, lest in darkness thou finish thy race,

And sink to the depth of eternity's gloom.

Delay not, delay not, the hour is at hand,

The earth shall dissolve and the heavens shall fade,

The dead, small and great, in the judgment shall stand,

What power then, O sinner, shall lend thee its aid?
