1. Sinner, Don’t Let This Harvest Pass 

Sinner, don’t let this harvest pass,
Sinner, don’t let this harvest pass,
Sinner, don’t let this harvest pass,
And die and go to Hell at last.

2. My Shepherd Will Supply My Need 

My shepherd will supply my need;
Jehovah is his name:
In pastures fresh he makes me feed
Beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back
When I forsake his ways;
And leads me, for his mercy’s sake,
In paths of truth and grace.

3. The Old Ship of Zion 

What ship is this that will take us all home?
O glory hallelujah!
And safely land us on Canaan’s bright shore?
O glory hallelujah!
’Tis the old ship of Zion, hallelu, hallelu;
’Tis the old ship of Zion, hallelujah!
