1 Always do your best for Jesus,
Whatsoe’er the task may be;
Let the light so shine that others,
In your life the Christ may see.

Refrain:
Always put your trust in Jesus,
Ever keep the cross of Christ in view;
Gazing there you will remember
How He bled and died for you.

2 Always do your best for Jesus,
Never quench the Spirit’s fire!
He will make your life a blessing
And with joy your soul inspire. [Refrain]

3 Always do your best for Jesus,
Oft as called to give for Him!
Whether time, or strength, or money,
Fill the measure to the brim. [Refrain]

4 Always do your best for Jesus,
Tho’ the price be tears and pain;
If for Him you humbly suffer;
You with Him in heav’n shall reign. [Refrain]

Rufus H. McDaniel was ordained in the Christian church in 1873. He found much joy in church music. He began writing hymns in the 1880's. He wrote, "I feel in my soul that God has something for me to do in brightening the experience of struggling souls. My chief desire is to be a blessing, if possible, to my fellow-men through these hymns and thereby glorify God in the name of his dear son 'whose I am and whom I serve.'" Dianne Shapiro, from "The Singers and Their Songs: sketches of living gospel hymn writers" by Charles Hutchinson Gabriel (Chicago: The Rodeheaver Company, 1916) Go to person page >
