What would Jesus think?

Live like Jesus here in this world
(1 John 4:17; NLT).

1. Lord,
As I observe my mind,
Help me to wonder:
What would Jesus think?

2. Lord,
Before I start to speak,
Help me to ponder:
What would Jesus say?

3. Lord,
When I’m about to act,
Help me to question:
What would Jesus do?

4. Lord,
As I progress through life,
Help me to ask you:
Is this Jesus’ way?

1. Darkness is as beautiful as light,
For you are present;

2. Solitude, as welcome as a friend,
For you are near.

3. Silence is as intimate as speech,
For you are with us;

4. Stillness, as dynamic, Lord, as dance,
For you are here.
