1 Speak for Jesus; He hath touched you,
Raised you form the death of sin;
Use for Him the life He gives you;
Rise and precious jewels win!

Arise and speak! arise and speak!
Christ is list'ning now above;
Arise and speak for Him who saves you,
Arise and speak for Him you love!

2 Speak for Jesus; not unaided
Shall we go before His face;
He will take our lips and fill them
With the message of His grace. [Refrain]

3 Speak for Jesus; let His Spirit
Tell you what to do and say;
Humbly, gladly own your Savior;
let your light shine out today! [Refrain]

4 Speak for Jesus, blessed Savior!
Tell of mercies, sweet and true;
Pleading, on His throne of glory,
He is speaking now for you. [Refrain]
