49. The Redemption Story

1 Tell me, pilgrim, trav’ling homeward,
Are you holy, free from sin?
Are you flashing light around you?
Are you witnessing for Him?

Refrain:
Yes! Yes! Yes!
It fills my heart with glory
To tell the hungry, thirsting soul
Of the redemption story.

2 Have you made a consecration
Of yourself and earthly store?
Have you died to all but Jesus
And His will forevermore? [Refrain]

3 Do you love to read the Bible—
Feel the Spirit’s holy fire?
Do you measure to its standard?
Does each duty you inspire? [Refrain]

4 Do you gladly tell the story
Of the Savior’s wondrous love?
How He fills the soul with glory
Pure as heaven’s light above? [Refrain]

5 Are you seeking out the needy?
Leading sinners to the blood?
Thus, O pilgrim, should we ever
Live and work alone for God. [Refrain]
