1 Go out in the highways and hedges,
And gather the wanderers in;
Persuade them to come and seek mercy
Of Jesus who’ll pardon their sin.

Refrain:
Do something for Jesus today,
Do something for Jesus today,
Be faithful and true,
Your life journey thro’;
Do something for Jesus today.

2 Go earnestly, plead with the wayward,
And help them to enter the fold;
Do something, my brother, for Jesus,
For you He bore sorrows untold. [Refrain]

3 Oh, testify freely for Jesus,
Yield fully to His sweet control,
Tell others the hope that you cherish,
And blessings that gladden your soul. [Refrain]
