Representative Text

1 If the way is drear and your heart needs cheer,
You should get in touch with Jesus;
If you wish to be truly pure and free,
You should get in touch with Jesus.

Refrain:
You should get in touch with Him today
And receive His pardon while you may;
If you wish a guide all along the way,
You should get in touch with Jesus.

2 If you know that you are not good and true,
You should get in touch with Jesus;
If your soul is weak and a friend you seek,
You should get in touch with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Would you see your friends when your journey ends?
You should get in touch with Jesus;
He alone can guide to the Glory side,
You should get in touch with Jesus. [Refrain]
