Are you willing that the Lamb

Representative Text

1 Are you willing that the Lamb of God shall be
Crucified afresh for thee?
Are you willing to refuse his love again,
The Lamb for sinners slain?

Refrain:
Oh! do not grieve him,
Just now receive him,
With thy soul the Spirit striveth,
Grieve him not away.

2 Are you willing that the blood shall not avail?
That his mercy too, shall fail,
Are you willing to reject his pleading voice,
And make the world your choice? [Refrain]

3 Are you willing, when the final day shall come,
When the saints are gathered home;
Are you willing that the Judge shall say to thee,
“Depart, depart from me?” [Refrain]
