1 Answer “Yes” to Jesus,
His commands obey;
With a loving spirit
Serve him ev’ry day;
Toil within his vineyard,
Fight the fight of faith,
Go where’er he bids you,
Do whate’er he saith.

Chorus:
Answer “Yes” to Jesus,
Harken to his call;
To his blessed service
Consecrate your all.

2 Answer “Yes” to Jesus
In life’s op’ning hours,
To the Master yielding
All your blood-bought pow’rs.
Let not courage falter,
Let not faith grow dim;
All upon the altar
Freely yield to him. [Chorus]

3 Answer “Yes” to Jesus:
Faithful be and true
To this dear Redeemer
Who has died for you.
To the One who loves you
Ev’ry talent give;
Labor for the Master,
To his glory live. [Chorus]

4 Answer “Yes” to Jesus:
You are his by right;
In His royal service
Find your chief delight.
He who hath redeemed you
By your side will stand
Till you reach the border
Of the shining land. [Chorus]
