What Will You Do with Jesus?, #108

Lyrics

Verse 1
Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes low and sweet;
As tenderly He bids you
Your burdens lay at His feet;
Oh, soul so sad and weary,
That sweet voice speaks to thee;
Then what will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

Chorus
What shall the answer be?
What shall the answer be?
What will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

Verse 2
Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes loud and clear;
The solemn words are sounding
In ev’ry list’ning ear;
Immortal life’s in the question,
And joy thro’ eternity;
Then what will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

Verse 3
Oh, think of the King of Glory
From heav’n to earth come down,
His life so pure and holy,
His death, His cross, His crown;
Of His divine compassion,
His sacrifice for thee;
Then what will you do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?
