Lyrics

The Lord on trial stands today,
Awaits to hear what you will say;
You treat none else in such a way—
What will you do with Jesus?

Refrain

What will you do with Jesus?
Will you be false or true?
Shall friends one day be asking,
What will He do with you?

Our Savior will be tried by all,
Just like He was in Pilate’s hall;
What is your answer to this call—
What will you do with Jesus?

Refrain

O why not enter now His fold?
He pleads for you, both young and old;
His love for you has oft been told—
What will you do with Jesus?

Refrain

Will you still longer Him deny,
And as of old, condemn to die?
Or will you say, Lord, here am I?
That’s what I’ll do with Jesus!

Refrain
