Representative Text

1 Today belongs to Jesus,
With all that I can do
To turn an evil world from sin,
And rebel human hearts to win:—
Today belongs to Jesus
With all that I can do.

Refrain:
Today belongs to Jesus,
A blessed, blessed day;
His presence makes it all so bright,
And serving Him is my delight,—
O yes, my work for Jesus
Brings gladness to the day.

2 Today belongs to Jesus,
A blessed, busy day,
Of telling to a fallen race
The story of redeeming grace,
The saving grace of Jesus
That purges sin away. [Refrain]

3 Today belongs to Jesus,
To use in saving men,
To lead them out of shadows dim
And point them tenderly to Him,
And to the cross of Jesus,
Where hope is born again. [Refrain]

4 Today belongs to Jesus,
A happy day for me;
A day of sitting at His feet,
Of love and prayer, and labor sweet,—
A day of serving Jesus
Is full of joy for me. [Refrain]
