Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Something for Jesus each day

I want to do something for Jesus, I want his

Author: George P. Hott
Tune: [I want to do something for Jesus] (Ruebush)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 I want to do something for Jesus,
I want His commands to obey;
I would not be idle one moment,
But loving and serving each day.

Refrain:
Something, something,
Something for Jesus I’d say,
Something, something,
Something for Jesus each day.

2 I want to do something for Jesus,
I want His pure life to commend;
I would not speak harmful of any,
Much less of my heavenly Friend. [Refrain]

3 I want to do something for Jesus,
A message, a voice, or a song;
I want in His footsteps to follow,
Wherever my Master has gone. [Refrain]
