Kol­lam Ru­fus H. Cor­ne­li­us, 1922 (🔊 pdf nwc).

What shall I do, then, with Jesus?
As said Pontius Pilate of old,
The world has so much to please us,
Of honors, of silver and gold.

Refrain

What shall I do? What shall I do?
The question is old, and ’tis new;
In sickness, in death and the judgment,
O, then, what with me shall He do?

What shall I do, then, with Jesus?
Forsaken, and suffering, and sold,
When life is full of diseases,
And I am forsaken and old?

Refrain

What shall I do, then, with Jesus?
Who died on the cross and for sin,
Who else can comfort or lead us,
When billows of death doth roll in?

Refrain

What shall I do, then, with Jesus?
When in the great day I shall stand,
Shall it be with unbelievers?
Or joyfully at His right hand?
