Lyrics

Still undecided, tho’ close to life’s gate,
O why not now enter, already ’tis late;
Jesus is waiting, and calling for you;
Chains He will sever—all things He can do.

Refrain

Why not decide tonight? Why not decide tonight?
Jesus is waiting and calling for thee,
Calling for thee, calling for thee;
Why not decide tonight? Why not decide tonight?
Jesus is waiting and
Calling, is calling now for thee.

Still undecided, why yet still delay?
All things are ready, Love shows you the way;
Night fast approaches, the day passes by,
Heed now His pleading: Oh why will you die?

Refrain

Still undecided! for thee He was slain,
And why should His suffering for thee be in vain?
Think of the scourging, the spear and the cross!
Life He would give you—all else is but loss.

Refrain

Still undecided! His voice sounds so clear:
Come all ye who weary, who falter and fear;
Freely I pardon, and cleanse and receive!

Why not accept Him, and on Him believe?

Refrain

Still undecided! O wait not too long;
O turn from the world and its wild, restless throng;
Jesus now calls you—once more doth He call—
Come while He’s waiting, and trust Him for all.

Refrain
