1 Do everything for Jesus,
Nor seek an hour’s reprieve,
But give Him all thy service
From morn till silent eve;
How much to do for Jesus?
O never, never ask;
’Tis everything for Jesus—
This lightens every task.

2 Bear everything for Jesus,
Of suffering or wrong;
The patient soul grows stronger;
The way will not be long;
Bear everything for Jesus,
And count the loss but gain;
Since by His grace He frees us,
And shatters every chain.

3 Share everything with Jesus,
For thou art not thine own;
The pain, the joy, the conflict,
Is not for thee alone;
Share everything with Jesus,
Each want, each woe, each care;
In everything He sees us,
And hears our every prayer.
