788. What Will You Do with Jesus? (Norton)

1 Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes loud and sweet;
As tenderly He bids you
Your burdens lay at His feet;
Oh, soul so sad and weary,
That sweet voice speaks to thee;

Then what you will do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

2 Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes loud and clear;
The solemn words are sounding
In every list’ning ear;
Immortal life’s the question,
And joy eternally; [Refrain]

3 Oh, think of the King of Glory
From Heav’n to earth come down,
His life so pure and holy,
His death, His cross, His crown;
Of His divine compassion,
His sacrifice for thee; [Refrain]
