Representative Text

1 Someone has turned from the Lord away;
Someone has gone from the fold astray;
Someone is treading the downward way—
Lord is it I? Lord, is it I?

Refrain:
Lord is it I? O the thought, like a dart,
Pierces the innermost depths of the heart!
If there is one who in Thee hath no part,
Lord is it I? Lord, is it I?

2 Someone is grieving the Savior’s love,
Wounding the heart of the Holy Dove,
Strangely forgetting his God above—
Lord is it I? Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

3 Someone is out where the breakers roll;
Someone is near to the treacherous shoal;
Someone will lose His immortal soul—
Lord is it I? Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

4 Someone will enter eternal rest;
Someone will lean on the Savior’s breast;
Someone will dwell in the mansions blest—
Lord is it I? Lord, is it I? [Refrain]
