49. Why not To-night?

1 O do not let the Word depart,
And close thine eyes against the light;
Poor sinner, harden not your heart,
Thou wouldst be saved,
Why not tonight?

Refrain:
Why not tonight? why not tonight?
Thou wouldst be saved,
Why not tonight?
Why not tonight? why not tonight?
Thou wouldst be saved,
Why not tonight?

2 Tomorrow’s sun may never rise
To bless thy long deluded sight;
This is the time, O then be wise,
Thou wouldst be saved,
Why not tonight? [Refrain]

3 The world has nothing left to give;
It has no new, no pure delight;
Oh! try the life that Christians live!
Thou wouldst be saved,
Why not tonight? [Refrain]

4 Our blessed Lord refuses none
Who would to Him their souls unite;
Believe on Him, the work is done,
Thou wouldst be saved,
Why not tonight? [Refrain]
