Scripture Verse

He…that had received two talents came and said, Lord, You gave me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your Lord. Matthew 25:22–23

What are you doing for Jesus,
Since He redeemed you from sin?
Gladly fulfilling your promise,
Souls for the kingdom to win?


What are you doing for Jesus?
Thoughtfully ponder it o’er;
Could you with joy at His coming
To Him each talent restore?

What are you doing for Jesus?
Letting your light shine for Him shine?
Seeking to honor the Father?
Heeding each precept divine?


What are you doing for Jesus?
Idling the moments away?
Yielding to every temptation?
Even forgetting to pray?


What are you doing for Jesus?
Now every promise renew,
And till He calls you to Heaven,
Ever be loyal and true.
