    Lyrics

    Burl Ives - Are ye able ? (said the Master)

    Are ye able, said the Master,
    To be crucified with Me?
    Yea, the sturdy dreamers answered,
    To the death we follow Thee.

    Refrain
    Lord, we are able. Our spirits are Thine.
    Remold them, make us, like Thee, divine.
    Thy guiding radiance above us shall be
    A beacon to God, to love and loyalty.
    Are you able to relinquish
    Purple dreams of power and fame,
    To go down into the garden,
    Or to die a death of shame?

    Refrain
    Lord, we are able. Our spirits are Thine.
    Remold them, make us, like Thee, divine.
    Thy guiding radiance above us shall be
    A beacon to God, to love and loyalty.
    Are ye able, when the anguish
    Racks your mind and heart with pain,
    To forgive the souls who wrong you,
    Who would make your striving vain?

    Refrain
    Lord, we are able. Our spirits are Thine.
    Remold them, make us, like Thee, divine.
    Thy guiding radiance above us shall be
    A beacon to God, to love and loyalty.
    Are ye able to remember,
    When a thief lifts up his eyes,
    That his pardoned soul is worthy
    Of a place in paradise?

    Refrain
    Lord, we are able. Our spirits are Thine.
    Remold them, make us, like Thee, divine.
    Thy guiding radiance above us shall be
    A beacon to God, to love and loyalty.
    Are ye able when the shadows
    Close around you with the sod,
    To believe that spirit triumphs,
    To commend your soul to God?

    Refrain
    Lord, we are able. Our spirits are Thine.
    Remold them, make us, like Thee, divine.
    Thy guiding radiance above us shall be
    A beacon to God, to love and loyalty.
    Are ye able? Still the Master
    Whispers down eternity,
    And heroic spirits answer,
    Now as then in Galilee.

    Refrain
    Lord, we are able. Our spirits are Thine.
    Remold them, make us, like Thee, divine.
    Thy guiding radiance above us shall be
    A beacon to God, to love and loyalty.
