1 If the sinful ways of life
You are tempted to pursue,
Just stop and think before you yield—
What would Jesus do?

Refrain:
What, oh, what would Jesus do?
What, oh, what would Jesus do?
When you’re tempted, always stop and think,
What, oh, what would Jesus do?

2 Let your heart from sin be clean,
And your strength in Him renew;
Let meekness in your works be seen—
Thus would Jesus do. [Refrain]

3 If your brother is in need,
And to him you would be true;
Then show your love by word and deed—
Thus would Jesus do. [Refrain]

4 Let your light forever shine,
Keep the will of God in view;
To sinners prove His love divine—
Thus would Jesus do. [Refrain]

5 When you’re to the judgment brought,
Will you always have been true?
Then don’t forget the solemn thought—
What would Jesus do? [Refrain]
