105. And Shall I Turn Back?

1 My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine,
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign;
My gracious Redeemer, my Saviour art Thou;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now.

Refrain:
And shall I turn back into the world?
O, no, not I, not I!
And shall I turn back into the world?
No, no, not I!
I’ll never turn back, never turn back,
O, no, not I, not I!
I’ll never turn back, never turn back,
O, no, not I!

2 I love Thee because Thou has first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now. [Refrain]

3 I’ll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou givest me breath,
And say when the death-dew lies cold on my brow;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now. [Refrain]

4 In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I’ll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus, ’tis now. [Refrain]
