You May, If You Will, #38

Lyrics

Verse 1
If you will, you may know the gladness of your sins forgiv’n,
If you will, if you will,
If you will, you may make the angels sing for joy in heav’n,–
If you will, if you will.

Chorus
If you will, if you will;
Oh, hallelujah, praise the Lord,
I am happy in the promise of his word;
Brother, you may share the blessing here, and glory over there,
If you will, if you will.

Verse 2
If you will, you may close the door and let him knock in vain,
If you will, if you will,
If you will,– but his Spirit may not ever knock again,–
If you will, if you will.

Verse 3
If you will, there are souls that you may lead to life and love,
If you will, if you will,
If you will, there’s a crown that you may wear in heav’n above,–
If you will, if you will.

Verse 4
If you will, you may sing in heav’n forever with the blest,
If you will, if you will,
If you will, you may meet the loved ones in that home of rest,–
If you will, if you will.
