Full Text

1 You will want to spend eternity with Jesus;
You will want to walk with Him the heav’nly way;
Thro’ His great redeeming grace you will want to see His face,
Then make Him yours today.

Refrain:
Make Jesus yours today and go with Him alway!
To Calvary He went for Thee,
Then make Him yours today.

2 You will want to have the precious Savior with you
In that morning when the clouds are rolled away.
You will want Him for a friend when you reach the journey’s end;
Then make Him yours today. [Refrain]

3 You will want to know your sins are all forgiven;
You will want to hear the blessed Savior say:
“Come to me! I paid the price, made for you the sacrifice!”
Then make Him yours today. [Refrain]
