1. Why do you wait, dear brother,
Oh, why do you tarry so long?
Your Saviour is waiting to give you
A place in His sanctified throng.
Why not? Why not?
Why not come to Him now? (2ce)
2. What do you hope, dear brother,
To gain by a further delay?
There’s no one to save you but Jesus,
There’s no other way but His way.
3. Do you not feel, dear brother;
His Spirit now striving within?
Oh, why not accept His salvation,
And throw off your burden of sin?
4. Why do you wait, dear brother?
The harvest is passing away;
Your saviour is longing to bless you,
There’s danger and death in delay!
