In these days of dark distress
I come to you, I must confess..
I come to you with outstretched hand
To tell you of that Promised Land!
I come to tell you of my Lord
How you can trust Him by His Word.
Now, you may scoff and you may shrink
Away from Truth-- but on the brink
You'll find a hell, so vile and cruel
Awaiting every scoffing fool!
"Take your religion, leave it at home
Take your contentions from which I'll roam.
Don't bother me! I'm doing fine..
Mind your own business and I'll mind mine!"
Sounds all familiar from lashing tongue
Self-righteous claims, all said and done.
Safe and secure, you feel with your lot
With no need of "junk" the Christians have got!
Take heed when you bolster your standing, so tall
Lest while you are boasting, you have a great fall.
All of your riches will go up in smoke
You'll have nothing left-- not a hat nor a cloak.
The day will come when all that I've said
Will come to pass, and you will dread
The fiery pit, the painful seethe
With gnawing tongue and gnashing teeth!
O, this may sound to you remote
A thought on which you will not dote.
These things, you feel, cannot be true
And certainly-- won't happen to you!!
O foolish heart and haughty pride
Don't you know, you'll slip and slide?
You'll tumble from your lofty perch
Come crashing down, without a search!
Your "goodness" then will come to naught
Because the Saviour was not sought.
I come to you and humbly plead
Open your eyes and see all your need
Open your heart to the Saviour's call
And let Him come in, once and for all!
The time is short, 'twill soon be spent
Then nothing you do, or ever had meant
Will free you from guilt or sorrowful shame
From eternal hell and tortuous maim!
Don't scoff and reject these words, I implore!
Don't run from he Truth and receive it no more..
The day will come when sneering will cease
And judgment on all will have its release
On those who refused to open their eyes
Rejecting the Truth, but accepting lies!
On those who did turn away from our pleas
To look upon Christ and fall on their knees.
The day will come, and soon enough
When all these things you'll not rebuff.
You'll not refuse to see the Light
For it will be so shining bright
On every eye and trembling lip
That mocked Him so with every quip.
The day will come-- before you know
When I can say:
"I TOLD YOU SO!!"
