1 What would Jesus have you do,
Youthful soldiers, brave and true?
How would He the tempter meet?
How would He the foe defeat?

Refrain:
What would Jesus have you do,
Jesus, daily watching you?
Follow Him along the way,
Look to Jesus day by day.

2 What would Jesus do today?
Would the Savior turn away?
Would He not be kind indeed,
Glad to help in time of need? [Refrain]

3 In the Word of God so true,
Jesus shows you what to do;
If you ask Him, He will hear,
He will make the duty clear. [Refrain]

4 Lay up treasure far above,
Walk with Jesus Christ in love;
Every day your pledge renew,
Do what Christ would have you do? [Refrain]
