26. I Will

1 Once more, my soul, thy Saviour, thro’ the Word,
Is offered full and free;
And now, O Lord, I must, I must decide:
Shall I accept of Thee?

I will! I Will! I will!
God helping me, I will,
O Lord, be Thine!
Thy precious blood was shed to purchase me—
I will be wholly Thine!

2 By grace I will Thy mercy now receive,
Thy love my heart hath won:
On Thee, O Christ, I will, I will believe,
And trust in Thee alone! [Refrain]

3 Thou knowest, Lord, how very weak I am,
And how I fear to stray;
For strength to serve I look to Thee alone—
The strength Thou must supply. [Refrain]

4 And now, O Lord, give all with us to-day
The grace to join our song;
And from the heart to gladly with us say:
“I will to Christ belong!” [Refrain]

5 To all who came, when Thou wast here below
And said, “O Lord, wilt Thou?”
To them, “I will!” was ever Thy reply:
We rest upon it now. [Refrain]
