O Why Not Tonight?
Words: Elizabeth Holmes Reed
Music: O Why Not Tonight? | James Calvin Bushey
1. O do not let the Word depart,
And close thine eyes against the light;
Poor sinner, harden not your heart,
Be saved, O tonight.

2. Tomorrow’s sun may never rise
To bless thy long deluded sight;
This is the time, O then be wise,
Be saved, O tonight.

3. Our Lord in pity lingers still,
And wilt thou thus His love requite?
Renounce at once thy stubborn will,
Be saved, O tonight.

4. Our blessed Lord refuses none
Who would to Him their souls unite;
Believe on Him, the work is done,
Be saved, O tonight.

Refrain:
O why not tonight?
O why not tonight?
Wilt thou be saved?
Then why not tonight?
