295. Why Do You Wait?

1 Why do you wait, dear brother,
O why do you tarry so long?
Your Savior is waiting to give you
A place in His sanctified throng.

Why not? why not?
Why not come to Him now?
Why not? why not?
Why not come to Him now?

2 What do you hope, dear brother,
To gain by a further delay?
There’s no one to save you but Jesus,
There’s no other way but His way. [Refrain]

3 Do you not feel, dear brother,
His Spirit now striving within?
O why not accept His salvation
And throw off your burden of sin? [Refrain]

4 Why do your wait, dear brother,
The harvest is passing away;
Your Savior is longing to bless you,
There's danger and death in delay. [Refrain]
