Yes I will – A Communion poem


1. Down from the mountain, the Savior came

With the greatest of sermons complete

The crowds still in awe thronged about Him

But then one came, and fell at His feet

REFRAIN: If you will Lord – If you will

There’s no doubt that you can – if you will.

If you will Lord – if you will

There’s no hope but in you – If you will

2. In his uncleanness the Leper came

Falling, kneeling and making this prayer

“Lord if you will, you can make me clean”

In a mixture of hope and despair

REFRAIN: If you will Lord – If you will

There’s no doubt that you can – if you will.

If you will Lord – if you will

There’s no hope but in you – If you will

3. In His sweet mercy the Savior spoke

As He stretched out His hand and replied

Touching the one that’s untouchable

As the Leper’s own leprosy died!

REFRAIN: Yes I will Child – YES, I will

All who come may be clean, yes I will

Yes I will Child – YES! I will!

You can come and be clean, yes I will.

4. In our uncleanness we sinners came

Falling, kneeling and making our prayer

Lord, if you will – you can make us clean

Our uncleanness pervades everywhere

REFRAIN: If you will Lord – If you will

There’s no doubt that you can – if you will.

If you will Lord – if you will

There’s no hope but in you – If you will

5. And in His sweet mercy He spoke to us

Then He stretched out His hand yet again

Touching us in our defilement,

Then again, and again, and again!

REFRAIN: Yes I will Child – YES, I will

All who come may be clean, yes I will

Yes I will Child – YES! I will!

You can come and be clean, yes I will.

Taken from – Matt. 8:1-3 / John 13:6-10 / 1 John 1:5-10
