Lowell Mason (1792–1872)


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.
