Representative Text

1 Live for Jesus, live for Jesus,
Serve him ev’ry day;
Follow him where’er he leads you,
Trust him and obey.
Look to him when you are tempted,
Cast on him your care;
He will grant you ev’ry blessing,
He will hear your pray’r.

I will live for Jesus,
I will love him too,
Gladly labor in his vineyard,
Strive his will to do.

2 To the One who loves so dearly,
Loyal be and true;
Gladly labor in his vineyard,
Strive his will to do.
He will keep your feet from straying
In temptation’s way;
Follow where his love may lead you,
Trust him and obey. [Chorus]
