1 I’ll speak a word for Jesus!
How could I silent be,
When all my life, my Savior,
Has done so much for me?

Refrain:
I’ll speak a word for Jesus!
My heart with joy doth sing!
Why should I fear to render
This service for my king?

2 My trembling lips may falter,
Yet gladly I will say
The message Jesus gives me,
To cheer some soul today. [Refrain]

3 I’ll speak a word for Jesus!
His cleansing blood I know,
And I must tell to others
The debt of love I owe. [Refrain]

4 A word! yes, for my Jesus
I’ll speak till life shall end,
That those who do not know Him,
May find the sinner’s friend. [Refrain]
