Representative Text

1 Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
He left the bright glories above,
And laid down his life as a ransom,
Thy soul to redeem thro' his love.

Chorus:
Oh, what are you doing, my brother,
As the days and the years roll by?
Are you living for Jesus who saves you,
Are you laying up treasures on high?

2 Oh, what are you doing for Jesus,
Your Savior, Redeemer and Friend?
Are you out in the highway and hedges,
Going forth where the Master doth send? [Chorus]

3 Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
All ripen'd the harvest now stands;
The Lord of the vineyard wants reapers,
Are you heeding his urgent commands? [Chorus]

4 Oh, what are you doing for Jesus?
While you wait, souls are passing away;
When the Master shall ask for his talents,
Oh, brother, what will you then say? [Chorus]
