You Think The House Of Prayer So Sweet


You think the house of prayer so sweet,
So sweet the voice of sacred song;
You turn away reluctant feet,
As tho’ the hour you would prolong;
And yet your soul is unforgiv’n,
No title yet have you for heav’n;
You mean sometime to kneel and pray,
Why not today?
Why not today?

You think you love God’s people now,
You love their company to share;
You love before His throne to bow,
And listen to their humble pray’r;
Why should you pause and hesitate,
Until perhaps it be too late?
You mean sometime to kneel and pray,
Why not today?
Why not today?

There is no work beyond the grave,
There is no labor or device,
There is no pow’r can reach to save,
There is no ransom there or price;
No gospel word or gospel song,
No house of God where Christians throng;
You mean sometime to kneel and pray,
Why not today?
Why not today?
