525. I Will, I Will!

1 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you leave your sinful way?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you bear the cross for Him?
Oh, will you start the prize to win?
I will, I will.

Refrain:
I’ll give up sin, the prize to win,
And meekly bear the cross for Him,
I will, I will.

2 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you walk the narrow way?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you persecutions bear,
And fight a starry crown to wear?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

3 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you come without delay?
I will, I will.
Will you give up the world this hour,
And prove His mighty saving pow’r?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

4 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Despite what men and demons say?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you stand with Christ alone,
The Rock of Truth and Corner Stone?
I will, I will. [Refrain]

5 Oh, will you count the cost today?
Oh, will you speak and sing and pray?
I will, I will.
Oh, will you read the word He’s giv’n,
And do His will as ’tis is heav’n?
I will, I will. [Refrain]
