136. Shall it be You or I?

1 Who’ll speak a word for the Lord and Savior,
Shall it be you, shall it be I?
Tell of His love to a friend or neighbor,
Shall it be you or I?
Out in the world, O the pain and sorrow,
Hearts that must break and die!
Who’ll say to them there is joy tomorrow?
Shall it be you or I?

Shall it be you? shall it be I?
Shall it be you or I?
Who’ll say to them there is joy tomorrow?
Shall it be you or I?

2 Who’ll do a work for the King and Master,
Shall it be you, shall it be I?
Help save a soul from his sin’s disaster,
Shall it be you or I?
Here in the camp are our watch fires burning,
Refuge secure and nigh?
Who’ll reach a hand to the lost one turning?
Shall it be you or I?

Shall it be you? shall it be I?
Shall it be you or I?
Who’ll reach a hand to the lost one turning?
Shall it be you or I?

3 Who’ll sing a song for the blest Redeemer,
Shall it be you, shall it be I?
Sing how He pardons the greatest sinner,
Shall it be you or I?
He shows the soul to the courts of heaven,
Points where the pathways lie;
Who’ll praise His name for the message given?
Shall it be you or I?

Shall it be you? shall it be I?
Shall it be you or I?
Who’ll praise His name for the message given?
Shall it be you or I?
