Lyrics

What are you doing for Jesus,
As you journey thro’ life?
Sowing the grain for the harvest,
Or scattering seeds of strife?

Refrain

What are you doing,
Doing for Jesus?
What are you doing,
As the days go by?
What are you doing,
Doing for Jesus?
What are you doing,
As the days go by?

What are you doing for Jesus?
Are you striving each day,
By little acts of kindness,
To brighten someone’s way?

Refrain

What are you doing for Jesus,
As the days go by?
Telling the lone and the weary
Of rest beyond the sky?

Refrain

What are you doing for Jesus?
Soon comes setting of sun;
Hasten and tell the glad tidings,
Lest you leave some work undone.
