Will you go to Je­sus now, dear friend?
He is calling you today:
Will you seek the bright and better land,
By the true and living way?


I will, I will! by the grace of God, I will;
I will go to Je­sus now;
I will heed the Gos­pel call,
For the promise is for all;
I will go to Je­sus now.

Would you know the Sav­ior’s boundless love,
And His mercy rich and free?
Will you seek the saving, cleansing blood,
That was shed for you and me?


Will you consecrate your life to Him,
To be ever His alone?
And your loving service freely yield,
To the King upon His throne.


Will you follow where the Mas­ter leads,
Choosing only His renown,
Will you daily bear the cross for Him,
Till He bids you wear the crown?
