Lyrics

What would Je­sus have you do,
Youthful soldiers, brave and true?
How would He the tempter meet?
How would He the foe defeat?

Refrain

What would Je­sus have you do,
Jesus, daily watching you?
Follow Him along the way,
Look to Je­sus day by day.

What would Je­sus do today?
Would the Sav­ior turn away?
Would He not be kind indeed,
Glad to help in time of need?

Refrain

In the Word of God so true,
Jesus shows you what to do;
If you ask Him, He will hear,
He will make the duty clear.

Refrain

Lay up treasure far above,
Walk with Je­sus Christ in love;
Every day your pledge renew,
Do what Christ would have you do?
