Lyrics

Will you take Jesus to be your guide?
His love will brighten the way;
Safe in His keeping you may abide;
Will you take Jesus today?

Refrain

Will you take Jesus today?
Will you take Jesus today?
He offers pardon and peace to all;
Will you take Jesus today?

For you the Savior was crucified,
Accept His love while you may;
The door of mercy stands open wide;
Will you take Jesus today?

Refrain

He longs to enter your heart of sin;
How can you turn Him away?
Throw wide the portal and let Him in;
Will you take Jesus today?

Refrain

I will take Jesus, my Lord and king;
His word I gladly obey;
My sins forgiven, His praise I’ll sing,
I will take Jesus today!
