1 Will you take Jesus to be your Guide?
His love will brighten the way;
Safe in His keeping you may abide,
Will you take Jesus today?

Refrain 1-3:
Will you take Jesus today?
Will you take Jesus today?
He offers pardon and peace to all;
Will you take Jesus today?

2 For you the Savior was crucified,
Accept His love while you may;
The door of mercy stands open wide,
Will you take Jesus today? [Refrain]

3 He longs to enter your heart of sin,
How can you turn Him away?
Throw wide the portal and let Him in;
Will you take Jesus today? [Refrain]

4 I will take Jesus, my Lord and King,
His word I gladly obey;
My sins forgiven, His praise I’ll sing,
I will take Jesus today!

Refrain 4:
I will take Jesus today!
I will take Jesus today!
He offers pardon and peace to all;
I will take Jesus today!
