1 What will you do with Jesus?
He calls in accents sweet,
And bids you lay your burdens
Down at the Savior’s feet.
O weary one and lonely,
Who longs for rest in vain,
To you He’s tenderly calling,
He calls, and calls again.

What will the answer be?
What will the answer be?
Jesus is calling you, answer,
Oh, what will your answer be?

2 What will you do with Jesus?
The dearest Friend you know,
Who watches ev’ry footstep
Along the path you go;
And many a snare and pitfall
He gently tides you o’er,
And still you rudely treat Him,
Just as you did before. [Refrain]

3 What will you do with Jesus?
Who died on Calv’ry’s tree,
Who gave His precious life-blood,
That you might e’er be free
From sin and condemnation,
From fear of death and hell,
And give you joy and gladness,
And grace, His love to tell. [Refrain]

4 What will you do with Jesus?
This loving Friend so true,
He’s waiting still your answer,
How long must He wait for you?
Oh, answer now this question,
E’er answer comes too late,
And you—alone—forsaken,
Must stand outside the gate. [Refrain]
