Representative Text

1 Why don’t you get right with God, O sinner?
Forsake now the path you so long have trod,
Your sins will be lost in the depths of love’s ocean,
If you’ll only get right with God.

Refrain:
Why don’t you get right with God?
O come to him just as you are,
Why don’t you get right with God,
Ere he calls you, calls you to his judgment bar.

2 Why don’t you get right with God, O wand’rer?
Come back to the way that you used to love,
Your God will receive you and give you a welcome,
And new joys send you from above. [Refrain]

3 Be sure you are right with God, O Christian!
Let nothing deceive you, be sure to know,
You’ve left all your doubts at the cross of your Saviour,
And your soul under Calv’ry’s flow. [Refrain]

4 Why longer refuse his tender compassion,
Why longer remain in your lost estate,
Get right with your God while the moments are passing,
Ere it be evermore too late. [Refrain]
