Full Text

1 Oh, may I while I live on earth,
Sing for Jesus, sing for Jesus;
Praise him with my heart and breath,
Sing to his dear name.
For have I not great cause for praise,
To him who crowns my youthful days,
And leads me through the pleasant ways,
To sing of his dear name.

2 And may I while I live below,
Speak of Jesus, speak of Jesus;
Never tire of his dear name,
Tire of his dear name.
Oh! how much he has done for me,
He hung on Calv'ry's cursed tree;
That I might evermore be free,
To speak for his dear name.

3 Then let me while my life remains,
Live for Jesus, live for Jesus;
Count it honor, though I oft
Suffer for his name.
But when at last my life shall be,
With him throughout eternity;
Oh! then how sweet it there will be,
To ever live for him.
