Full Text

1 Jesus needs your service ev’ry passing day,
For the workers yet are few;
In the world are multitudes from God away,
There is much that you can do.

Jesus needs your willing service day by day,
Do not while the many golden hours away;
He will all your sacrifice and love repay,
Jesus needs you ev’ry day.

2 There are hearts that droop with sorrow and with pain,
Speak to them a word of cheer;
There are those who seek for light but seek in vain,
Spread the gospel far and near. [Refrain]

3 Multitudes have never heard of Jesus love,
Tell to them the story sweet;
Of the mighty One who came from heav’n above,
Who can give them joy complete. [Refrain]
