Now is th’accepted time,
Now is the day of grace;
Now sinners! come without delay,
And seek the Savior’s face.

Now is th’accepted time,
The Savior calls today;
Pardon and peace He freely gives,
Then why should you delay?

Now is th’accepted time,
The Gospel bids you come;
And every promise in His Word,
Declares there yet is room.

Lord, draw reluctant souls,
And feast them with Thy love;
Then will the angels spread their wings
And bear the news above.
