Representative Text

1 I’ll do what I can for Jesus,
Wherever my place may be—
I’ll do what I can for Jesus,
For He has done much for me.

Refrain:
It may not be much, but I’ll do what I can,
Do what I can—do what I can—
It may not be much but I’ll do what I can
To make some one happy today.

2 I’ll do what I can for Jesus,
Who knoweth that I am small,
But says little deeds will please Him
And He will accept them all. [Refrain]

3 I’ll do what I can for Jesus,
Wherever my feet shall go—
I’ll do what I can for Jesus,
For Jesus has blessed me so. [Refrain]

4 I’ll do what I can for Jesus,
Yes—cheerfully do my part—
I’ll do what I can for Jesus,
And do it with loving heart. [Refrain]
