1. When Jesus calls me, I will go;
I will! I will!
When it is best to answer No,
I will! I will!
I’ll shun temptation’s pathway wide,
And journey by my Savior’s side,
And in His peace and love abide.
I will! I will!

2. When Jesus says, Rejoice and sing,
I will! I will!
A song of praise and love I’ll bring,
I will! I will!
A song of joy for triumphs won,
A song of rest when toil is done;
If I may cheer some lonely one,
I will! I will!

3. I’ll answer when I hear His call,
I will! I will!
Should He command, Give me thine all,
I will! I will!
Whene’er for Christ I need to fight,
With gleaming sword and armor bright,
I’ll bravely battle for the right,
I will! I will!

4. When in the conflict I should stay,
I will! I will!
I’ll ask for wisdom every day;
I will! I will!
We cannot know till we begin
How hard it is to conquer sin;
But by and by a crown I’ll win;
I will! I will!
