1 Someone today will seek thy face,
Someone begin the heav’nly race,
Someone will triumph through thy grace,–
Lord, is it I?
Someone will triumph through thy grace,–
Lord, is it I?

2 Someone will pour the ointment sweet
Over thy sacred head and feet,
Mary’s sweet act of love repeat,–
Lord, is it I?
Mary’s sweet act of love repeat,–
Lord, is it I?

3 Someone today the cross will bear,
Some for thy glory do and dare,
Someone thy goodness will declare,–
Lord, is it I?
Someone thy goodness will declare,–
Lord, is it I?
