Now just a word for Jesus;
Your dearest friend so true;
Come, cheer our hearts and tell us
What He hath done for you.

Refrain

Now just a word for Jesus,
’Twill help us on our way!
One little word for Jesus,
Oh speak, or sing, or pray!

Now just a word for Jesus;
You feel your sins forgiven,
And by His grace are striving
To reach a home in Heaven.

Refrain

Now just a word for Jesus;
A cross it cannot be
To say, I love my Savior
Who gave His life for me.

Refrain

Now just a word for Jesus;
Let not the time be lost;
The heart’s neglected duty
Brings sorrow, to its cost.

Refrain

Now just a word for Jesus;
And if your faith be dim;
Arise in all your weakness
And leave the rest to Him.

Refrain
