Full Text

1 Someone is slighting the Saviour of men;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone is spurning His love once again;
Lord, is it I?

Lord is it I? Lord is it I?
Pardon our weakness, and blot out each sin;
Hear us, dear Lord, as we cry!

2 Someone is halting, and counting the cost;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone in darkness and sin may be lost;
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

3 Someone’s betraying his Master today;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone is walking a perilous way;
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

4 Someone is living in selfish delight;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone is turning his face from the light,
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

5 Someone in silence is making the choice;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone will yield to the Lord, and rejoice,
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]
