VERSE 1
Today is th day of salvation
If you 'er going with me
You'll have to quit works of men
Christ will set you free

CHORUS:
Christian hold out your light
Christian hold out your light
Christian hold out your light
Hold out th light of God

VERSE 2
You can hide your sin from people
Deceive th Christian men
But God can see you, th darkest night
An' member all o' your sins

VERSE 3
If you 'er, been Christian
An' God's words you repose
To know bye an' bye on th judgement day
You'll reap whatever you sew
