1 You have heard the good old gospel,
And the fervent pray’r for you,
And time to think it over,
So now what will you do?
Will you let the loving Saviour
Have an answer, swift and true,
For you need Jesus in your life,
And He needs you.

Refrain:
Will you take your stand for Him?
Will you take your stand for Him?
His voice is calling now to you,
It is the manly thing to do;
Will you take your stand for Him?
Will you take your stand for Him?
You need Jesus in your life,
And He needs you.

2 Have you kept all God’s commandments?
There is one thing yet you lack;
You cannot hide from Jesus
Just what still keeps you back;
Come and lay it on the altar,
And believe His word so true,
For you need Jesus in your life,
And He needs you. [Refrain]

3 For an hour is surely coming,
And it may be coming soon,
It may be at the midnight,
Or in the sunny noon;
With the moments swiftly flying,
You will find them all too few,
For when death comes you’ll need him, but
Will He need you? [Refrain]

At first he furnished compositions to the Hall-Mack Publishing Company, but soon became editor and manager, where he worked for 37 years.

He published the following song books: “New songs of the gospel” (1900), “The service of praise” (1900), “The voice of praise” (1904), “The tribute of song” (1904), “New songs of the gospel… Go to person page >
