WILL YE ALSO GO AWAY




When any turn from Zion's way,
(Alas! what numbers do!)
Methinks I hear my Saviour say,
Wilt thou forsake me too?


Ah Lord! with such a heart as mine,
Unless thou hold me fast;
I feel I must, I shall decline,
And prove like them at last.


Yet thou alone hast pow'r, I know,
To save a wretch like me;
To whom, or whither, could I go,
If I should turn from thee?


Beyond a doubt I rest assured
Thou art the Christ of God;
Who hast eternal life secured
By promise and by blood.


The help of men and angels joined,
Could never reach my case;
Nor can I hope relief to find,
But in thy boundless grace.


No voice but thine can give me rest,
And bid my fears depart;
No love but thine can make me blest,
And satisfy my heart.


What anguish has that question stirred,
If I will also go?
Yet, Lord, relying on thy word,
I humbly answer, No!
