1 O why should I longer reject Him?
The way of salvation is clear;
I’m saved, if I only accept Him;
Then why should I falter or fear?

I will (I will), I will (I will),
I will accept Jesus now.
I will (I will), I will, I will,
I will trust the Savior now.

2 The Savior so loving and tender,
Stands waiting so close to my side;
My will unto Him I surrender;
I’ll trust in the Christ crucified. [Refrain]

3 And now, if I’ll only confess Him,
His peace like a river will flow;
My life will be filled with rich blessing,
And that I am saved I shall know. [Refrain]

4 Lord Jesus, I do now accept Thee,
My Savior and shepherd to be;
I’ll travel life’s pathway beside Thee;
I’m saved, and Thy blood is my plea. [Refrain]
