1 There is sin in the camp, there is treason today!
Is it in me?
Is it in me?
There is cause in our ranks for defeat and delay,
Is it, O Lord, in me?
Something of selfishness, garments or gold,
Something of hindrance in young or in old,
Something why God doth His blessing withhold;
Is it, O Lord, in me?

Is it in me?
Is it in me?
Is it, O Lord, in me?

2 I come in my need to the life-giving Word,
Is it for me?
Is it for me?
By faith in its pow’r let my soul be restored,
Is it, O Lord, for me?
Pardon and purity Jesus will give,
Life everlasting to all who believe;
Oh that His pow’r I might fully receive!
Is it, O Lord, for me?

Is it for me?
Is it for me?
Is it, O Lord, for me?

3 There is peace in believing, whatever betides,
Is it for me?
Is it for me?
There is rest to the soul that in Jesus abides,
Is it, O Lord, for me?
Surely the work of redemption is done,
Surely the Father is pleased with the Son,
Surely the saved and the Saviour are one;
Surely ‘tis all for me.

All for me,
All for me,
Surely ‘tis all for me.
