Poetry: Speak out for Jesus

Selected

You talk about your business,
Your bonds and stocks and gold,
And in all worldly matters
You are so brave and bold.

But why are you so silent
About salvationís plan?
Why donít you speak for Jesus,
And speak out like a man?

You talk about the weather,
And the crops of corn and wheat,
You speak of friends and neighbors
That pass along the street.

You call yourself a Christian,
And like the gospel plan,
Then why not speak for Jesus,
And speak out like a man?

Are you ashamed of Jesus,
And the story of the cross,
That you lower His pure banner
And let it suffer loss?

Have you forgot His suffering?
Did He die for you in vain?
If not, then live and speak for Jesus,
And speak out like a man.
