1 What have you done as the days have sped by?
What have you done for Jesus?
What blessed records were entered on high?
What have you done for Jesus?

Refrain:
What have you done for Jesus?
What have you done for Jesus?
When fades the day, O what will you say?
What have you done for Jesus?

2 Pleasures you’ve sought, and the world’s fleeting gain,
What have you done for Jesus?
Treasures of earth you have tried to obtain,
What have you done for Jesus? [Refrain]

3 Riches untold He has bought you and me;
What have you done for Jesus?
Blessed salvation, abundant and free!
What have you done for Jesus? [Refrain]

4 No work abides but the service of love;
What have you done for Jesus?
Seeking the jewels, that sparkle above,
What have you done for Jesus? [Refrain]
