1 There’s sin in the camp, there is treason today!
Is it in me? Is it in me?
There’s 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 power 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 power I may fully receive,
Is it, O Lord, for me?
Is it for me? Is it for me?
Is it, O Lord, for me?

3 There’s peace in believing, whatever betide;
Is it for me? Is it for me?
There’s 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 Savior are one—
Surely ’tis all for me!
All for me! All for me!
Surely ’tis all for me!
