If you are happy in Jesus this hour,
If you are saved by His wonderful power,
If your December’s as pleasant as May,
Tell about Jesus today.


Oh tell about Jesus today, today,
Tell about Jesus today, today;
No matter what others may think or may say,
Just tell about Jesus today.

If you want Jesus to answer your cry,
If your heart yearns for the mansion on high,
If you find pleasure whenever you pray,
Tell about Jesus today.


If you now walk in the light of the Lord,
If you are led by His glorious Word,
If on your pathway shines Heaven’s own ray,
Tell about Jesus today.


If you are freed from the power of each sin,
If fully cleansed from all evil within,
If in His promise believing alway,
Tell about Jesus today.


If you are trusting in power divine,
If on His breast you now gladly recline,
If in sweet confidence, thus you would stay,
Tell about Jesus today.
