Lyrics

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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?
