8091. What Would Jesus Have You Do?

1 What would Jesus have you do,
Youthful soldiers, brave and true?
How would He the tempter meet?
How would He the foe defeat?

What would Jesus have you do,
Jesus, daily watching you?
Follow Him along the way,
Look to Jesus day by day.

2 What would Jesus do today?
Would the Savior turn away?
Would He not be kind indeed,
Glad to help in time of need? [Refrain]

3 In the Word of God so true,
Jesus shows you what to do;
If you ask Him, He will hear,
He will make the duty clear. [Refrain]

4 Lay up treasure far above,
Walk with Jesus Christ in love;
Every day your pledge renew,
Do what Christ would have you do? [Refrain]
