The Gospel According To You

If none but you in the world today

Had tried to live the Christlike way,

Could the rest of the world look close at you

And find the path that is straight and true?

If none but you in the world so wide

Had found the Christ for his daily guide,

Would the things you do and the things you say

Lead others to live in His blessed way?

Ah, friends of the Christ, in the world today

Are many who watch you upon your way,

And look to the things you say and do

To measure the Christian standard true:

Men read and admire the Gospel of Christ

With its love so unfailing and true,

But what do they say and what do they think

Of the gospel according to you?

You are writing each day a letter to men

Take care that the writing is true;

‘Tis the only gospel that some men will read,

That gospel according to you. (Author Unknown)

He said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. (Mark 16:15)
