Why not you

Representative Text

1 Many are happy in Jesus tonight,
Why not you? Why not you?
Sure of a home in the mansions of light,
Why not you?

Daily His wonderful mercy they prove,
Singing, rejoicing, as onward they move;
Safe in His keeping they rest in His love,
Why not you?

2 Many were snatch’d from the brink of despair,
Why not you? Why not you?
Now in the joys of the Righteous they share,
Why not you? [Refrain]

3 Many a prodigal child has returned,
Why not you? Why not you?
Blessings to find in the home they had spurned,
Why not you? [Refrain]

4 Many are close to the brink of the grave,
Why not you? Why not you?
Fully persuaded that Jesus can save,
Why not you? [Refrain]

5 Many are now on their journey to heav’n,
Why not you? Why not you?
Knowing thro’ faith that their sins are forgiv’n,
Why not you? [Refrain]
