Representative Text

1 Have you ever done your best for Jesus?
Has your daily life the lesson taught,
That the sacrifice for sin once offered,
In your soul the saving grace has wrought?

Chorus:
For Jesus, for Jesus,
Have you ever done your best for Jesus?
In some glad, supremest hour
Have you giv’n your utmost pow’r?
Have you ever done your best for Jesus?

2 Have you ever done your best for Jesus,
Have you sung for him your sweetest song?
Have your truest, bravest words been uttered
To repel the rising tide of wrong? [Chorus]

3 Have you ever done your best for Jesus,
Is your love for him a glowing flame?
Do you tell of his complete salvation,
For the glory of his matchless name? [Chorus]

4 Have you ever done your best for Jesus,
All a consecrated life can do?
Oh, the coming of his blessed kingdom
Will depend upon the faithful few. [Chorus]
