1 Many are turning from darkness to light:
Why not you?
Why not you?
Many are coming to Jesus tonight:
Why not you?

Refrain:
Why not you?
Why not you?
What will you answer?
What will you do?
Many are trusting the Friend ever true:
Why, O why not you?

2 Many believing, confess and obey:
Why not you?
Why not you?
Turning from sin to the Savior today:
Why not you? [Refrain]

3 Many in Jesus are hiding their past:
Why not you?
Why not you?
Many are safe in His bosom at last:
Why not you? [Refrain]

4 Many are going to live for the right:
Why not you?
Why not you?
Many are starting for heaven tonight:
Why not you? [Refrain]

5 Many are working to save precious souls:
Why not you?
Why not you?
Many shall live as eternity rolls:
Why not you? [Refrain]
