1 If you love Him you will always speak for Jesus,
Firmly standing for the right in ev’ry test,
“God so loved” He gave the fairest gift of heaven,
If you love Him you will give to Him your best.

Refrain:
If you love Him, if you love Him,
You will serve the Saviour better ev’ry day,
If you love Him, if you love Him,
You will let the Saviour guide you all the day.

2 If you love Him you will trust Him in temptation,
You will shun the evil that would make you fall,
In the hour when all seems lost, you will not falter,
If you love Him you will trust in spite of all. [Refrain]

3 If you love Him you will ask for any blessing,
That His everlasting goodness has made known,
He has said, “Ask what ye will, in faith believing,”
If you love Him you will claim it as your own. [Refrain]

4 If you love Him you will be a friend to sinners,
You will lead them to the One who understands,
“Take the cross and follow daily,” Jesus tell us,
If you love Him you will do as He commands. [Refrain]
