Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Now is the time; for this day’s setting sun
May be the signal that thy race is run;
Jesus is waiting at the mercy-seat;
O come and lay your burdens at His feet.
Come, O come! the Spirit bids you come!
Come, O come and seek your heav’nly home!
Jesus still invites you why then longer wait?
Hasten, for tomorrow may be too late!
2 Now is the time; the Spirit’s gentle voice
Is calling thee to make the better choice;
Kindly persuasive is the loving call,
Which offers peace and pardon unto all. [Chorus]
3 Now is the time; beyond the narrow grave
Repentance there will have no pow’r to save;
O, turn from sin, and heav’nward set your face,
Accept salvation as the gift of grace. [Chorus]
