(To the tune of So Little Time by John R. Rice)
Lyrics by  Sarah and Angela Trenholm and  Jerry Bouey



1.
Esther was called to plead for her people.
Fear gripped her heart; Mordecai reminded her:
Twas her life too that now hung in the balance,
And she was given the kingís ear for this cause.

Despite her fears, boldly she went before the throne,
To plead the cause of her people before the king.
As she drew near, his favor was extended,
Grace was given, for such a time as this.


Chorus:
For such a time as this we have been called,
To preach the Gospel to a dying world.
How will they hear, except that we obey Him?
For such a time, for such a time as this.


2.
Stand in the gap, petition for the lost world.
Snatch from the fire, rescue souls bound by their sin.
Break the chains of darkness thatís enslaved them.
Proclaim the truth in Jesusí blessed name.

So as you stand in the place that God has given you,
Do not fear, Heís standing by your side,
And He will give the grace that you require,
As He promised, for such a time as this.


Chorus:

3.
So little time, the day of grace is fading.
The sands of time are slipping through our hands.
Hold forth the Word, the Gospel of Salvation,
Lest you have their blood upon your hands.

Have compassion, our loved ones need the Saviour.
Let it not be said, "No man cared for my soul."
Lift up your eyes, the field is white to harvest,
For such a time, for such a time as this.


Last Chorus:
For such a time as this we have been called,
To preach the Gospel to a dying world.
How will they hear, except that we obey Him?
Oh will you go, for such a time as this?

The sands of time are slipping through our hands.
Hold forth the Word, the Gospel of Salvation,
Lest you have their blood upon your hands.

Have compassion, our loved ones need the Saviour.
Let no one say, "No man cared for my soul."
Lift up your eyes, the field is white to harvest,
We need to go, for such a time as this.

Final Chorus:
For such a time as this we have been called,
To preach the Gospel to a dying world.
How will they hear, except that we obey Him?
Oh will you go, for such a time as this?
