James R. Murray (1841–1905)


Come to the Sav­ior, now’s the day,
Moments are pass­ing fast away;
Ask Him for­giv­eness to al­low,
Ask Him to save you, ask Him now.


Ask Him to save you while you may,
Ask Him to help you on your way;
Ask Him to par­don, to en­dow,
Ask Him to love you, ask Him now.

Now is the time, ac­cept­ed time,
Jesus is call­ing, don’t de­cline;
Tell Him your weak­ness, all avow,
Tell Him your long­ings, tell Him now.


He will re­ceive you, do not fear,
All that He asks is fer­vent pray­er;
He has a crown await­ing you,
Will you ac­cept it, will you now?
