115. The World for Jesus

1 The world for Jesus—earnestly
We’ll work as well as pray;
With armor bright maintain the fight,
Till victory crowns the day.

Refrain:
All the world, all the world,
All the world for Jesus!
With armor bright maintain the fight,
Till victory crowns the day.

2 The world for Jesus—patiently
The cross below we’ll bear,
Till, suffering o’er, we lay it down,
The crown above to wear. [Refrain]

3 The world for Jesus—joyfully
We lift our waiting eyes
To wondrous signs upon the earth,
To wonders in the skies. [Refrain]

4 The world for Jesus—gloriously
The shout will rise, Amen;
The Lord, the God omnipotent,
On earth has come to reign. [Refrain]
