Representative Text

1. I want to do something for Jesus,
He suffered and died on the tree;
That I thro’ His death might have pardon—
He’s done so much for me!

Refrain
I want to do something for Jesus,
Tho’ weak and unworthy I be;
I’ll labor for Him, my dear Savior—
He’s done so much for me!

2. I want to do something for Jesus,
Because He from sin made me free;
He rescued my soul from all danger,
He’s done so much for me! [Refrain]

3. I want to do something for Jesus,
His servant I’m willing to be;
I’ll tell of His love and His mercy,
He’s done so much for me! [Refrain]

4. I want to do something for Jesus,
That others His great love may see;
Forever I’ll sing the sweet story,
He’s done so much for me! [Refrain]
