Representative Text

1 I’ll speak a word for Jesus,
Wherever I may be;
I’ll not forget He paid my debt,
On cross of Calvary.

Refrain:
Yes, I will speak for Jesus,
For me He groaned and died;
I’ll spread His fame, confess His name,
Whatever may betide.

2 I’ll speak a word for Jesus,
And for the Master stand;
Tho’ sceptics smile and foes revile,
Obey my Lord’s command. [Refrain]

3 I’ll speak a word for Jesus,
His banner, high upraise;
Will loyal prove to Him I love,
Throughout my pilgrim days. [Refrain]

4 And when I meet my Jesus,
In home of blessedness,
‘Mid angels bright, upon the right,
My Lord will me confess. [Refrain]
