Representative Text

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.

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]
