Live for Jesus, O my brother,
His disciple ever be;
Render not to any other,
What alone the Lord’s should be.
Live for Jesus, live for Jesus;
Give Him all thou hast to give;
On the cross the world’s Redeemer
Gave His life that Thou mightst live.
Live for Jesus, wandering sinner,
Under Satan serve no more;
Of the promised prize a winner
Thou may’st be, when life is o’er.
Live for Jesus in life’s morning;
At the noontide hour be His;
And at eve, when day is turning,
And inherit endless bliss.
