1 The Master is calling for someone today
To work in his broad harvest-field,
To save for his garner the ripening grain,
Asks someone glad service to yield.

Refrain:
Is it I? Is it I?
Is it I? tell me, Lord, is it I?
Thy voice gently falling, for someone is calling,
Is it I, tell me, Lord, is it I?

2 The Master is calling for someone today
To stand in his ranks brave and true,
To march to the conflict against mighty foes,
And willing allegiance renew. [Refrain]

3 The Master is calling for someone today
To go with his message of love,
To give to the wand’rer the rescuing hand,
To lead to the Saviour above. [Refrain]

4 The Master is calling for someone today
The treasure which time cannot dim,
For love’s consecration of all its good gifts,
All riches and glory for him. [Refrain]
