3 Tempted souls, they bring you succor,
Fearful hearts, they quell your fears;
And with news of consolation,
Chase away the falling tears:
Tender heralds—
Chase away the falling tears.

4 False professors, groveling worldlings,
Callous hearers of the word,
While the messengers address you,
Take the warnings they afford:
We entreat you,
Take the warnings they afford.

5 Who hath our report believed?
Who received the joyful word?
Who embrac'd the news of pardon,
Offered to you by the Lord?
Can you slight it—
Offered to you by the Lord?

6 0, ye angels hovering round us,
Waiting spirits, speed your way;
Hasten to the court of heaven,
Tidings bear without delay:
Rebel sinners
Glad the message will obey. Allen.

1 Now is the accepted time,
Now is the day of grace;
Now, sinners, come without delay,
And seek the Saviour's face. l

2 Now is the accepted time, | The Saviour calls to-day; N

- - | To-morrow it may be too late— l Then why should you delay? | 3 Now is the accepted time, {} The Gospel bids you come; s And every promise in his word l Declares there yet is room. W 4 Lord, draw reluctant souls, | And feast them with thy love; |

Then will the angels clap their wings
And bear the news above. Dobell. |

Find in Christ the promis'd rest;

All your wants in Jesus find;

Now accept the proffer'd bliss. Desourcy.

Tooleanse your guilt and heal your woes;

How rich the gift, how free the grace i I
