O sacred head, once wounded


    • O sinner, the Saviour is calling for thee, 
    • long, long has He called thee in vain! 
    • He called thee when joy lent its crown to thy days, 
    • He called thee in sorrow and pain. 

    • O turn, while the Saviour in mercy is waiting, 
    • and steer for the harbour light! 
    • For how do you know but your soul may be drifting 
    • over the dead-line tonight? 

    • O sinner, thine ears have been deaf to His voice, 
    • thine eyes to His glory been dim! 
    • The calls of thy Saviour have so wearied thee, 
    • oh what if they should weary Him? 

    • O sinner, the Spirit is striving with thee! 
    • What if He should strive never more, 
    • but leave thee alone in thy darkness to dwell, 
    • in sight of the heavenly shore? 

    • O sinner, God‟s patience may weary some day, 
    • and leave thy sad soul in the blast! 
    • By wilful resistance you‟ve drifted away 
    • over the dead-line at last
