I will sing for Jesus,
With His blood He bought me;
And all along my pilgrim way
His loving hand has brought me.

Refrain

Oh, help me sing for Jesus,
Help me tell the story
Of Him who died to redeem us,
The Lord of life and glory.

Can there overtake me
Any dark disaster,
While I am singing for Jesus,
My blessèd, blessèd Master?

Refrain

I will sing for Jesus!
His name alone prevailing,
Shall be my sweetest music,
When heart and flesh are failing.

Refrain

Still I’ll sing for Jesus!
Oh, how will I adore Him,
Among the cloud of witnesses,
Who cast their crowns before Him.

Refrain
