Out and out for Jesus

Representative Text

1 Out and out for Jesus!
Should a sinner be,
Who his love has witnessed
There on Calvary;
Seen his holy dying,
Heard his bitter cry;
Out and out for Jesus,
Should be you and I.

Out and out for Jesus I will be!
Out and out that all the world may see!
Tho’ the world may scoff, deride,
He who helps is at my side;
Out and out for Jesus I will ever be.

2 Out and out for Jesus!
Only him discern;
For his cause and service
Hot with zeal to burn;
Cold or hot, he’d have us,
Hot, the, I will be,
Out and out for Jesus,
That’s for you and me. [Refrain]

3 Out and out for Jesus!
Soul and body, too;
Show a good confession
I will surely do;
For his blood has bought me,
Paid the ransom down.
Out and out for Jesus,
Till I win the crown. [Refrain]
