1 Now is the day of salvation,
Now you are hearing God’s voice,
Now is the time to seek pardon,
Now make the Savior your choice.

Refrain:
Now, now, now is the time,
Now is the time to be saved;
Now, now, now is the time,
Now is the time to be saved.

2 Now, while life’s sun still is shining,
Now, while the sky still is bright,
Now there is grace freely offered,
Now is the time to get right. [Refrain]

3 Now, while for you we are praying,
Now, while the Spirit still pleads,
Now, while all heaven is waiting,
Now come, supply your great needs. [Refrain]

4 Now, says the Father of mercy,
Now, says the Spirit to thee,
Now, says the Savior so loving,
“Now, sinner, come unto Me!” [Refrain]
