1 Now is the time acceptable, yes, now is salvation’s day,
Remember thy great Creator’s love and enter the King’s highway;
For, waiting thy soul is a pardon free, just now ere the days pass by,
Now while the Master calleth thee, answer Him, “Here am I.”

Refrain:
Come, tho’ you are heavy laden, come, tho’ you are sore distressed,
At the cross lay down thy burden, Jesus will give you perfect rest;
Come, now is the time accepted, come, mercy is by thy door,
And with Christ you’ll live forever in eternity forevermore.

2 Now while the light of morning shines, for soon follows noontide heat,
Soon cometh the chill of ev’ning gloom; could you thus the Saviour meet?
Behold, He is calling and loves you so, is urging thy soul today,
Blessings unmeasured you may know if you will now obey. [Refrain]

3 Now ere your heart grows colder still, ere seasons of dread draw nigh,
Yes, now ere you love your pow’r of will turn quickly and make reply;
For Jesus is pleading in love for thee, then come, at His footstool bow,
“All that are weary come to Me:” sinner, receive Him now. [Refrain]

4 Hear now the call that comes from God, no longer refuse His love,
Tomorrow may never come to you with blessings from Him above;
Today must decide your eternal home in darkness to live, or light,
Turn now to Christ, no longer roam, stand for the truth and right. [Refrain]
