Representative Text

1 Willing am I, and ready alway,
Willing am I his word to obey;
Willing am I to speak in His name,
Willing His love abroad to proclaim.

Refrain:
Willing to do what Jesus requires,
Willing to go where Jesus desires,
Willing to serve Him, ready alway,
Speak to me Master, I will obey.

2 Willing to go, nor question, nor pause;
Willing to do my best to His cause;
Willing to be of use anywhere,
Willing all things for Jesus to bear. [Refrain]

3 Willing to serve as duty demands,
Willing to aid with king helping hands;
Willing the way to heaven to show,
Willing to help the best that I know. [Refrain]

4 Willing the empty vessel to fill,
Willing to live conformed to His will;
Willing to work, to watch and to pray,
Willing to wait His coming some day. [Refrain]
