Master Thou Callest I Gladly Obey


Master, Thou callest, I gladly obey;
only direct me, and I’ll find Thy way.
Teach me the mission appointed for me,
what is my labor, and where it shall be.

Refrain:
Master, Thou callest, and this I reply,
“Ready and willing, Lord, here am I.”

Willing, my Savior, to take up the cross;
willing to suffer reproaches and loss.
Willing to follow, if Thou wilt but lead;
only support me with grace in my need. [Refrain]

Living, or dying I still would be Thine;
yet I am mortal while Thou art divine.
Pardon, whenever I turn from the right;
pity, and bring me again to the light. [Refrain]
