Representative Text

1 Let me speak a word for Jesus,
Let me sound my Master's praise,
He is listening— let him hear me
Telling of his wondrous ways,
Hush the clamor of earth's babel,
Still the murmurs of the throng,
Let me say a word for Jesus,
Let me sing for him a song.

He has filled my soul to overflowing,
With his blessings rich and free
Let me speak a word for Jesus
Who has done so much for me.

2 I will speak a word for Jesus,
I will tell you of his grace,
How he heard my cry for pardon
Showed his reconciled face.
How he cleansed my sin-stained garments,
How he healed my bleeding wounds,
Let me speak a word for Jesus,
For my heart with rapture bounds. [Refrain]

3 I will speak a word for Jesus,
Though my works are very weak,
He is listening— let him hear me
Of his loving kindness speak,
He is waiting to be honored,
I will own him as my King,
I will speak a word for Jesus,
Of his praises I will sing. [Refrain]
