Representative Text

1 I will say yes to my Saviour,
Down in the depths of my soul;
To Him I fully surrender,
On Him my burdens I roll.

Yes, yes, I will say yes to my Saviour,
Who died on the cross for me;
Yes, yes, I will say yes and will trust Him,
Whatever His will may be.

2 I will say yes to the Spirit,
Sent from my Saviour to me;
Comforter, Guide and Revealer,
Dwell Thou forever in me. [Refrain]

3 I will say yes when life’s trials
Come with their pain and their loss;
Yes in the valleys and tunnels,
Yes to the way of the cross. [Refrain]

4 I will say yes to the future,
Welcome whate’er He may send;
Come what there may I will trust Him,
Brother, Redeemer and Friend. [Refrain]

5 I will say yes when derision
Into my pathway shall fall;
Fully submitting to Jesus,
Friends, reputation and all. [Refrain]

6 I will say yes that the altar
Now sanctifieth my soul;
Peace passing all understanding
Over me sweetly doth roll. [Refrain]
