Representative Text

1 Looking backward thro’ the year,
Much that’s wasted doth appear;
What worthwhile can we recall?
Serving Jesus, that is all.

Refrain:
Serving Jesus every day,
Serving Jesus as we may,
In the great things and the small,
Serving Jesus, that is all.

2 Other work seems well nigh lost,
Little worth the pain it cost;
Earth’s rewards grow faint and small,
Serving Jesus, that is all. [Refrain]

3 Helping straying feet to turn,
Sending aid that all may learn,
Spreading wide the Savior’s call,
Serving Jesus, that is all. [Refrain]

4 Who, of all the friends we love,
Will forever faithful prove?
Never disappoint nor fall?
Perfect Jesus, He is all.

Refrain.
Perfect Savior, perfect friend,
Perfect love that knows no end;
Satisfying every call,
Perfect Savior, all in all.
