Once more, my soul, thy Saviour, thro' the Word,
Is offer'd full and free;
And now, O Lord, I must, I must decide:
Shall I accept of Thee?

I will! I will!
I will, God helping me,
I will, O Lord, be Thine!
Thy precious blood was shed to purchase me ---
I will be wholly Thine!

By grace I will Thy mercy now receive,
Thy love my heart hath won;
On Thee, O Christ, I will, I will believe,
And trust in Thee alone!

Thou knowest, Lord, how very weak I am,
And how I fear to stray;
For strength to serve I look to Thee alone
The strength Thou must supply!

And now, O Lord, give all with us today
The grace to join our song;
And from the heart to gladly with us say:
''I WILL to Christ belong!''

To all who came, when Thou was here below
And said, ''O Lord, wilt Thou?''
To them, ''I will!'' was ever Thy reply:
We rest upon it now.
