Representative Text

1 Speak a word for Jesus, anxious ears will hear,
Men in sin are dying for the news so dear;
Many are around you who have never heard,
They will gladly listen to a kindly word.

Refrain:
Speak a word, speak a word, He has died for you,
Don't forsake Him—no! but be a witness true;
He's depending on you—you must tell His love to men,
Then you'll be rewarded when He comes again.

2 Speak a word for Jesus where there's wickedness,
Where His name is mentioned sin will leave its place;
You're a living witness for your Savior, Lord,
Never be ye silent—speak a kindly word. [Refrain]

3 Speak a word for Jesus 'round the dying bed,
He will be a comfort when the spirit's fled;
In the silent chamber He will love impart,
He has consolation for the broken heart! [Refrain]
