Lyrics

I wonder, have I giv’n my best to Jesus,
Who died upon the cruel tree?
To think of His great sacrifice at Calv’ry,
I know my Lord expects the best from me.

Refrain

How many are the lost that I have lifted?
How many are the chained I’ve helped to free?
I wonder, have I done my best for Jesus,
When He has done so much for me?

The hours that I have wasted are so many,
The hours I’ve spent for Christ so few.
Because of all my lack of love for Jesus,
I wonder if His heart is breaking, too?

Refrain

I wonder, have I cared enough for others,
Or have I let them die alone?
I might have helped a wand’r to the Savior,
The seed of precious Life I might have sown.

Refrain

No longer will I stay within the valley,
I’ll climb to mountain heights above;
The world is dying now for want of someone
To tell them of the Savior’s matchless love.

Refrain
