Full 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]
