Words by Daniel W. Whittle
Music by Charles C. Case

2 Corinthians 6:2
"For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I
succoured thee:  behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."

          While we pray and while we plead,
          While you see your soul's deep need,
          While our Father calls you home,
          Will you not, my brother, come?

            Chorus
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?

          You have wandered far away;
          Do not risk another day;
          Do not turn from God your face,
          But today accept His grace.

            Chorus
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?

          In the world you've failed to find
          Aught of peace for troubled mind;
          Come to Christ, on Him believe,
          Peace and joy you shall receive.

            Chorus
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?

          Come to Christ, confession make;
          Come to Christ, and pardon take;
          Trust in Him from day to day,
          He will keep you all the way.

            Chorus
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?
            Why not now?         Why not now?
                          (Why not now?)              (Why not now?)
            Why not come to Jesus now?
