Representative Text

1 The world needs Jesus! The sick and sad
Must have His presence to make them glad;
The weak and weary would find His rest;
The lone and friendless in His be blest.

The world needs Jesus! Then tell of Him
When lives are darkened by shadows dim;
Repeat the tidings of hope divine,
O, tell the message where hearts repine.

2 The world needs Jesus! No other way
From earth to heaven, from night to day,
His love is boundless, His mercy sure,
Thro’ years eternal His words endure. [Refrain]

3 The world needs Jesus! He came to save,
He paid the ransom, His life He gave;
A free salvation in Him is found,
Tho’ sin and darkness on earth abound. [Refrain]

4 The world needs Jesus! The one true Light,
The Star of glory in earthly night,
Then tender Saviour, the loyal Friend,
The One whose mercies will never end. [Refrain]
