Must I Go Empty-Handed?
- Must I go, and empty-handed, Thus my dear Redeemer meet?
Not one day of service give Him, lay no trophy at His feet?
- Not at death I shrink nor falter, for my Savior saves me now
But to meet Him empty-handed, Tho't 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'er-take thee, Strive for souls while still you may
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?
