Do It Now

Representative Text

1 There is work for one and all,
Do it now, do it now.
Hear the Master to thee call,
Do it now, do it now.
Lead the young, the weak, the old;
Woo the strong, the brave, the bold,
To the tender Shepherd’s fold—
Do it now, do it now.

2 Can you help an erring one?
Do it now, do it now.
Stay not for "tomorrow’s sun,"
Do it now, do it now.
Bid them leave the paths of sin,
And a better life begin.
If some wanderer you can win—
Do it now, do it now.

3 If for Jesus you can speak,
Do it now, do it now.
Though your tones are low and weak,
Do it now, do it now.
Take the tempted by the hand,
Point them to a better land
That awaits "beyond the strand"—
Do it now, do it now.

4 Bid them trust in Jesus’ power;
Do it now, do it now.
Flee to Him this very hour,
Do it now, do it now.
Tell them that His life He gave,
Us from endless wrath to save,
Gained the victory o’er the grave,
Do it now, do it now.
