1 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Burdened with sin and fear;
He’ll forgiveness impart,—he will speak to my heart
Comforting words of cheer.

Refrain:
Saviour, receive me, Saviour, receive me,
Here at thy feet I bow;
Saviour, receive me, Saviour, receive me,
Saviour, receive me now.

2 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Pleading his own dear love;
With the blood shed for sin he will cleanse me within,
Fit me to dwell above. [Refrain]

3 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Seeking my soul’s true home;
My atonement is made and my ransom is paid;
Now to his arms I come. [Refrain]

4 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Blest Lamb of Calvary;
I am seeking his face, for I know that his grace
Waits now to welcome me. [Refrain]
