Representative Text

1 Jesus has sav’d you from darkness and sin,
Now He expects you some others to win;
See how His passion for sinners once led
Your Saviour to die in the guilty ones stead.

What are you doing for others today?
What are you doing to show them the way?
What are you doing, O children of God?
Doing to lead men to Jesus, your Lord?

2 If you have tasted the good word of God,
If you are trusting in Jesus the Lord;
You will want others to know Jesus too,
Will hasten to tell what He’s doing for you. [Refrain]

3 If you forgiveness and life have received,
If you God’s promises fully believe;
If at the cross you have found heav’nly light,
Win others to Jesus from bondage and night. [Refrain]
