On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Come To The Lord Now

Representative Text

1 Come to the Lord now, in the early morn!
Thank Him for every blessing you receive,
Ask for His mercies for this bright new day;
Trust every step you take in life’s long way,
For He’s your friend who keeps you till the end!

2 3Come to the Lord now, life is up and on!
Thank Him for lips and pen to praise His name,
Ask for His grace to deal with unbelief;
Trust Him to turn the evil into good,
For He’s your friend who keeps you till the end!

3 Come to the Lord now, night advances soon!
Thank Him for every race that you have won,
Ask for His pardon when you go astray;
Trust Him to keep you safe and sound this night
For He’s your friend who keeps you till the end!
