We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.@Acts 4:20

Edward C. Avis, in The Junior League Songster, edited by Stephen V. Ford (New York: Hunt & Eaton, 1891) (🔊 pdf nwc).

Tell what the Lord has done for you,
Speak just a word, speak just a word;
Stand for the right, be brave and true,
Speak just a word for Jesus.

Refrain

Speak just a word, speak just a word,
Gladly His love proclaim;
Tell what the Lord has done for you,
Speak just a word for Jesus.

Early begin to bear the cross,
Speak just a word, speak just a word;
They who deny Him suffer loss,
Speak just a word for Jesus.

Refrain

Tell if the Lord has cleansed your sin,
Speak just a word, speak just a word;
It may to Him some others win,
Speak just a word for Jesus.

Refrain

Fear not the world, nor heed its frown,
Speak just a word, speak just a word;
They who endure shall wear the crown,
Speak just a word for Jesus.

Refrain
