I Am Resolved
I am resolved no longer to linger,
Charmed by the world's delight,
Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
C G7 C
These have allured my sight.
C F C G7
I will hasten to Him, hasten so glad and free;
C F C G7 C
Jesus, greatest, highest, I will come to Thee.
I am resolved to go to the Saviour,
Leaving my sin and strife;
He is the true One, He is the just One,
He hath the words of life.
I am resolved to follow the Saviour,
Faithful and true each day;
Heed what He saith, do what He willeth,
He is the living Way.
I am resolved to enter the kingdom
Leaving the paths of sin;
Friends may oppose me, foes may beset me,
Still will I enter in.
I am resolved, and who will go with me?
Come, friends, without delay,
Taught by the Bible, led by the Spirit,
We'll walk the heavenly way.
