What Would Jesus Do

What Would Jesus Do?

As I walk from day through day,

I donít often have a plan.

But to the words that Jesus taught, I would be true.

And I try to walk His way,

Although I am but a man.

And do what Jesus would do.

 What would Jesus do?

If He faced what I face?

To all those sacred values, would He stay true?

Well, I know that He would,

Only the truth Heíd embrace.

So, I must take His cue,

And do what Jesus would do.

 

And if someone comes up to me,

Someone that I do not know.

And asks me to spare just a moment or two.

Then I hope I listen carefully,

The way Jesus did long ago.

And do what Jesus would do.

 

In all dealings I am fair,

And honest is all ways.

The thought of cheating another, I just never knew.

I treat all feelings with care,

And am avid in my praise.

And do what Jesus would do.

 

And when the day does end,

I think of all the things Iíve done.

Resolve that tomorrow, the good actions Iíll renew.

Treat all people as my friend,

Follow the teachings of the Son.

And do what Jesus would do.
