1 Grant, my dear Lord, thy blessing unto me,
I’ll pay the price! I’ll pay the price!
Ask what thou wilt no matter what it be,
I’ll surrender all to thee.

Refrain:
I’ll pay the price, whate’er the cost
Or sacrifice may be;
I’ll go with Jesus my dear Lord,
Tho’ it be to Calvary.

2 Tho’ on a cross my life may offered be,
I’ll pay the price! I’ll pay the price!
If from myself and sin I may be free,
I’ll surrender all to thee. [Refrain]

3 Nothing I keep, Lord, even liberty,
I’ll pay the price! I’ll pay the price!
Tho’ I must pass, Lord, thro’ Gethsemane,
I’ll surrender all to thee. [Refrain]

4 Take all I have, O Lord, away from me,
I’ll pay the price! I’ll pay the price!
All that I am or have or hope to be
I’ll surrender, Lord, to thee. [Refrain]
