1 What are you doing for Jesus,
Dear friend, today?
How are you serving the Master,
While passing along the way?

Bright moments are flying!
What are you doing for Jesus?
Come, gladly replying,
Now will I labor for Jesus;
Wait not for tomorrow;
Lifting a burden of sorrow,
Leading another to Jesus;
What are you doing today?

2 How are you helping your neighbor,
Dear friend, today?
Some kindly deed you may render,
Some comforting word may say. [Refrain]

3 How are you showing His glory,
Dear friend, today?
Faithfully telling the story,
That scatters the clouds away? [Refrain]
