1 While we pray and while we plead,
While you see your soul’s deep need,
While our Father calls you home,
Will you not, my brother, come?

Chorus:
Why not now? Why not now?
Why not come to Jesus now?
Why not now? Why not now?
Why not come to Jesus now?

2 You have wandered far away--
Do not risk another day;
Do not turn from God your face,
But today accept His grace. (Chorus)

3 In the world you’ve failed to find
Aught of peace for troubled mind;
Come to Christ, on Him believe--
Peace and joy you shall receive. (Chorus)

4 Come to Christ, confession make--
Come to Christ, and pardon take;
Trust in Him from day to day--
He will keep you all the way. (Chorus)
