How Long Has It Been?


How long has it been
You've lived in sin?
When will you begin
To sanctify within?

When was your last prayer
That laid your soul bare
To our Lord and Master
The Guardian of hereafter.

Have you read the Bible lately
Or is it just lying stately,
Gathering dust on some table,
Discarded as a book of fable.

How long has it been
Since you entered in
A church front door
And didn't think it a bore?

How long has it been
Since you've told a friend
About Jesus and his love
Or joys of Heaven above?

When did you last help someone
Whose life has been undone?
When did you give money or time
To one that doesn't have a dime?

How long do you think
You can stand on the brink
Between Heaven or Hell's route
Before your time finally runs out?

How long has it been
Since you ask Jesus in?
Will you wait too late
To open Heaven's gate?
