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?

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]
