Why Do You Wait?

For what shall it profit a man, if
he shall gain the whole world, and
lose his own life? Or what shall a
man give in exchange for his life?
Mark 8:36-37


Why do you wait, oh lost sinner,
When you hear the Savior call?
Why won't you kneel before Him,
And surrender to Him your all?

For nothing in this whole wide world
Is worth the price you'll pay,
If, when you hear the Master call,
You still choose to turn away.

You're free to choose, but please beware,
For if you serve some other "lord",
You'll find the price you'll have to pay
Will be much more than you can afford.

The price you'll pay won't be in money,
He has no need for your gold,
He owns the cattle of a thousand hills,
No, the price will be your soul.

It's a choice every person has to make,
Before they face eternity:
Jesus and heaven, or endless hell,
Tell me, what will your answer be?
