Why Not Now O Sinner Listen


Why not now? O sinner, listen
To that pleading voice within,
Saying, “Jesus came to save you
From the awful curse of sin.”

Refrain:
Oh, why not now? Oh, why not now?
All heaven waits while you delay;
Oh, why not now? Oh, why not now?
Risk not your soul for one more day.

Why not now? Your days are passing
Swiftly to eternity;
All your strength is unavailing
Your poor heart from sin to free. [Refrain]

Why not now? The future holdeth
Not one promise for your soul;
Come, accept God’s proffered mercy
Ere you die in sin’s control. [Refrain]

Why not now? Your death is nearing,
Soon your final day will come,
And your choice this very moment
May result in awful doom. [Refrain]

Why not now? Oh, do not linger,
Reason bids you make the choice;
Saints and angels bid you welcome,
Harken to that inner voice. [Refrain]
