873. For Jesus' Sake

1 Will you come and help us in our work,
For Jesus' sake?
Will you fight with enemies that lurk,
For Jesus' sake?
The pow'rs of evil stronger grow,
Within,without, we meet the foe;
Will you lend a hand to strike a blow,
For Jesus' sake?

Refrain:
For Jesus' sake, For Jesus' sake,
What will you do for Jesus' sake?
Let each one bring some worthy thing
For Jesus' sake.

2 Will you make the homes of darkness bright
For Jesus' sake?
Will you be an ever shining light
For Jesus' sake?
Against all forms of deadly sin,
Against all evil thoughts within,
Will you strike as one who means to win,
For Jesus' sake? [Refrain]

3 Will you curb the quick and angry word
For Jesus' sake?
Will you bear the yoke of our dear Lord
For Jesus' sake?
When work is hard and duty dry,
And easy seems the tempting lie,
Will you speak the truth, although you die,
For Jesus' sake? [Refrain]

4 Will you turn from ev'ry evil way
For Jesus' sake?
Will you climb up higher day by day
For Jesus' sake?
Amid the stress of earthly strife,
Amid a world with evil rife,
Will you try to live the higher life,
For Jesus' sake? [Refrain]
