Speak for Jesus; He hath touched you,
Raised you from the death of sin;
Use for Him the life He gives you;
Rise, and precious jewels win!


Arise and speak! arise and speak!
Christ is listening now above;
Arise and speak for Him who saves you,
Arise and speak for Him you love!

Speak for Jesus; not unaided
Shall we go before His face;
He will take our lips and fill them
With the message of His grace.


Speak for Jesus; let His Spirit
Tell you what to do and say;
Humbly, gladly own your Savior;
Let your light shine out today!


Speak for Jesus, blessèd Savior!
Tell of mercies, sweet and true;
Pleading, on His throne of glory,
He is speaking now for you.
