Representative Text

1 Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
As time passes rapidly on;
You reach to make use of the moments,
But find to your grief they are gone!
Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
The years seem but days as they fly;
Yet, what is the tale they are bearing,
In haste to the records on high?

Refrain:
Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
As time passes rapidly on;
You reach to make use of the moments,
But find to your grief they are gone!

2 Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
Some bark with the tide sweeps along;
No hand is put forth to impede it,
E’en tho’ it be drifting to wrong;
The quicksands of life lie before it,
Who knows what may yet be its fate?
Thy voice, if sent over the waters,
May save—if it be not too late. [Refrain]

3 Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
No day but may bring in its train;
The means of our helping another,
To reach for eternity’s gain;
Yet, day after day goes unheeded,
And each tells the same silent tale;
When time for us all shall be ended,
Ah, then no regrets will avail! [Refrain]
