Representative Text

1 The gospel message you have heard,
What will you do with Jesus?
Your answer cannot be deferred,
You must do something with Jesus.

Refrain:
What will you do with Jesus?
What will you do with Jesus?
To fail to accept Him is but to reject Him,—
O What will you do with Jesus?

2 The only hope for sinners lost,
What will you do with Jesus?
He paid you debt, His blood the cost,
You must do something with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 You must accept or else refuse,
What will you do with Jesus?
‘Tis life or death, which will you choose?
You must do something with Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Will you receive or bid Him go?
What will you do with Jesus?
Your answer must be “Yes” or “No,”
You must do something with Jesus. [Refrain]

5 Will you now claim Him as your own?
What will you do with Jesus?
Or go to judgment all alone?
You must do something with Jesus. [Refrain]

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
