1 Would I my blessed Lord obey,
His sacrifice, in part, repay,
Myself, for Him, I must deny,
Let me not think the price too high.

The blood-stain’d way, His footprints show,
Is full of pain and care, I know;
Tho’ many tears may dim my eye,
O let me not my Lord deny.
My blessed Lord to glorify,
For Him to live, for Him to die;
Let me not think the price too high,
The price could not be too high.

2 Let me take up my heavy cross,
To follow Him and count no loss,
My all to give and sanctify,
Let me not think the price too high. [Refrain]

3 O let me glad and grateful be,
That He entrusts a work to me,
My talents use and multiply,
Let me not think the price too high. [Refrain]
