Beloved, spare time today to reflect on the lyrics of this Christian Hymn:
“Must I go, and empty-handed,”
Thus my dear Redeemer meet?
Not one day of service give Him,
Lay no trophy at His feet?
Refrain: “Must I go, and empty-handed?”
Must I meet my Savior so?
Not one soul with which to greet Him:
Must I empty-handed go?
Not at death I shrink nor falter,
For my Savior saves me now;
But to meet Him empty-handed,
Thought of that now clouds my brow.
O the years in sinning wasted;
Could I but recall them now,
I would give them to my Savior,
To His will I’d gladly bow.
O ye saints, arouse, be earnest,
Up and work while yet ’tis day;
Ere the night of death o’ertake thee,
Strive for souls while still you may.
#Must I go, and empty handed?#
#Must I meet my Savior so?#
#Not one day of service give Him#
#Lay no trophy at His feet?#
#Not one soul with which to greet Him#
#Must I empty-handed go?#
