1 Are you serving Jesus with your might?
Are you making sunshine chase the night?
Are you spreading gladness as you go?
Are you leading others Christ to know?
Serving Jesus all along the way,
Serving Jesus, faithful night and day;
Serving your Master as you onward go,
Lift this ensign high.
Ever faithful, let there come what may;
Always ready any price to pay;
Loving your Master as you onward go,
Serve Him, faithful till the end.
2 Are you preaching Jesus by your life?
Are you helping others in the strife?
Are you gladly giving all your days?
Are you teaching others Christ to praise? [Refrain]
3 Are you doing ever Christ-like deeds?
Are you scatt’ring gladness, just like seeds,
Soon to bud and blossom, sweet and fair,
And to pour their fragrance ev’rywhere? [Refrain]
