1 Are you for Jesus? express it!
Tell it today!
Tell it today!
Be not ashamed to confess it,
Tell it today, today!
Have you your follies forsaken?
Tell it, tell it today!
Truly his cross have you taken,
Tell it, tell it today!

Chorus:
Tell it today, for the Master will hear!
Tell it today, for our hearts it will cheer!
Tell it in weakness, tell it in meekness,
Tell it, tell it today!

2 Are you for Jesus? don’t hide it!
Tell it today!
Tell it today!
What if the world should deride it?
Tell it today, today!
Are you ‘gainst evil contending?
Tell it, tell it today!
Are you on Jesus depending?
Tell it, tell it today! [Chorus]

3 Are you for Jesus? reveal it!
Tell it today!
Tell it today!
Why should you seek to conceal it?
Tell it today, today!
Does the Redeemer confess you?
Tell it, tell it today!
Does he forgive you and bless you?
Tell it, tell it today! [Chorus]
