1 If you wish to turn from sin,
Now is the time, now is the time;
Let the love of God shine in,
For now is the safest time.

Refrain:
Now is the time,
Now is the time;
Seek the Savior while you may
For now is the time.

2 If you have not looked above,
Now is the time, now is the time;
If you have not proved God’s love,
Now is the safest time. [Refrain]

3 If you have not served the Lord,
Now is the time, now is the time;
Seek Him in His precious word—
Now is the safest time. [Refrain]

4 If you have not lost your sin,
Now is the time, now is the time;
If you have not fought to win,
Now is the safest time. [Refrain]
