Christ My Song - 1121
Hark! hark! hark! - There's Room for Thee!
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
There's Room for Thee!
1. Hark! hark! hark!
'Tis a message of mercy free.
There's refuge from judgment within the ark;
O sinner, there's room for thee.
2. Come! come! come!
'Twas Jesus who rescued me.
The waters of judgment will close o'er some,
Oh, why should they close o'er thee?
3. Haste! haste! haste!
Delay not from wrath to flee.
Oh, wherefore the moments in madness waste
whilst mercy still waits for thee?
4. Look! look! look!
The Saviour in glory see.
The load of my sins on himself he took,
he suffered and died for me.
5. Now! now! now!
Tomorrow too late may be.
O sinner, acknowledge his glory now,
and know that he died for thee.
Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 174-175.
