1 You may help to save many souls from sin,
If you will, if you will;
You may help the false to be true and win,
If you will, if you only will.

Refrain:
If you will,
You may rescue souls from sin and
Lead the lost ones in,
If you will;
You may bring the sad and lone to Jesus

2 You may bear the light into valleys drear,
If you will, if you will;
You may soothe the bosom and dry the tear,
If you will, if you only will. [Refrain]

3 You may cheer the sad with a happy song,
If you will, if you will;
You may raise the fallen and make them strong,
If you will, if you only will. [Refrain]

4 You may grow in beauty and strength and love,
If you will, if you will;
You may wear the life-crown with saints above,
If you will, if you only will. [Refrain]
