Full Text

1. O why not say Yes to the Savior tonight?
He’s tenderly pleading with thee
To come to Him now with thy sin burdened heart
For pardon so full and so free.

Why not say Yes tonight?
Why not? Why not?
While He so gently, so tenderly pleads,
O accept Him tonight!

2. For with you the Spirit will not always plead—
O do not reject Him tonight!
Tomorrow may bring you the darkness of death,
Unbroken by heavenly light. [Refrain]

3. Take Christ as your Savior, then all shall be well,
The morrow let bring what it may;
His love shall protect you, His Spirit shall guide,
And safely keep you in His way. [Refrain]
