1 Let it be now! The choice is before us;
Come, while the Saviour so tenderly yearns;
Let it be now, Heav’n’s joy-bells in chorus
Ring out the tidings—a lost one returns!

Let it be now, O let it be now!

2 Let it be now, if life is beginning,
Now on the threshold of days yet to be;
Losing your life, a new one you’re winning,
A life that will last thro’ eternity. [Refrain]

3 Let it be now, tho’ years have been squandered,
Living for this world in pleasure or sin;
Pardon He will, tho’ far you have wandered,
Grant you His Spirit—a new life within. [Refrain]

4 Let it be now, tho’ life is declining,
Feebler the step, and fast failing the sight;
Why should you linger, hopeless, repining?
Trust Him, He’ll grant you at eventide light. [Refrain]

5 Let it be now! Come, helpless, believing,
Pleading His merits, in lowliness bow;
Pardon and cleansing, new life receiving,
O let it be now! Yes, let it be now. [Refrain]
