What Will You Do With Jesus? (Hymn)

What Will You Do With Jesus?
Nathaniel Norton (1921?)

Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes loud and sweet;
As tenderly He bids you
Your burdens lay at His feet;
Oh, soul so sad and weary,
That sweet voice speaks to thee;

Then what you will do with Jesus?
Oh, what shall the answer be?

Oh, what will you do with Jesus?
The call comes loud and clear;
The solemn words are sounding
In every listening ear;
Immortal life’s the question,
And joy through eternity;

Refrain

Oh, think of the King of Glory
From Heav’n to earth come down,
His life so pure and holy,
His death, His cross, His crown;
Of His divine compassion,
His sacrifice for thee;

Refrain

This is a hymn that I have been thinking about quite often lately.  That one phrase just keeps popping out in my mind: “What will you do with Jesus?”.  That really is the question of the ages.  Every person who comes into the world must deal with that question.  Some will reject Him, some will ignore Him, but some will listen to Him and follow Him.  What you do with Jesus will determine everything.  That is the question of the day: What will YOU do with Jesus?

  2. Ben, I believe I will follow Him! A related question is the one Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do you say I am?” I say He is Savior, Lord, and God Almighty. Peace, Linda

    • I love that passage. I think Peter said something like “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God”. The answer to that question is the one that determines everything. I believe I will follow Him, too! Thanks, Linda!
