We Will

Representative Text

1 'Tis thy command that ev'ry one
Should thy disciple be,
'Tis thy command that we should leave
Our all, and follow thee.

'Tis thy command, with heart and hand
Thy cause defending still,
To do and dare, thy cross to bear;
And by thy grace we will. [Chorus]

2 'Tis thy command that ev'ry heart
Thy temple, Lord, should be,
Should keep the perfect law of love,
And walk by faith with thee. [Chorus]

3 'Tis thy command that we should grow
In grace from day to day,
Should watch against the tempter's power,
And not forget to pray. [Chorus]

4 And since obedience to thy law
Our test of love must be,
Accept the willing sacrifice
That now we bring to thee. [Chorus]
