Someone Is Turning His Back On The Savio


Someone is turning his back to the Savior
And thus crucifying the Master anew,
Someone is slighting His pardoning favor;
My Lord, is it I? My friend, is it you?

Refrain:
O who would the love of the Savior abuse,
The mercy and pardon He offers, refuse?
The lost are so many, the saved are so few,-
My Lord, is it I? My friend, is it you?

Just as of yore He on trial is standing,
Denied by the many and loved by the few;
Someone “Away with Him!” still is demanding;
My Lord, is it I? My friend, is it you? [Refrain]

Someone too late will for mercy be calling
With death and eternity looming in view,
Crying for mountains on him to be falling;
My Lord, is it I? My friend, is it you? [Refrain]

Someone is crossing the deadline, dividing
The old life of sin and of shame from the new;
Someone just now is for Jesus deciding;
My Lord, is it I? My friend, is it you? [Refrain]
