1 The Master is asking, “Wilt thou be made whole?”
Wilt thou have salvation for thy poor lost soul?
Then lay all thy burden of sin at His feet,
For He has provided redemption complete.

Refrain:
Wilt thou be made whole; wilt thou be made whole,
‘Tis Jesus who asketh “wilt thou be made whole?”
Just trust Him, O soul, and receive Him today,
And He will redeem thee and keep thee alway.

2 Wilt thou be made whole; freed from sin’s ruthless chain,
And rise from the prison in which thou hast lain?
Then open thy heart for the Lord to come in;
His presence will end the dark bondage of sin. [Refrain]

3 The Master still asketh, wilt thou be made whole—
And have Divine comfort when heart-surges roll?
In Jesus alone is salvation revealed,
And all who will come unto Him shall be healed. [Refrain]
