Words by Ensign Edwin Young (b. 1895), 1923Tune: MY BEST by Harry E. Storrs (20th Century)Key signature: F major (1 flat)Meter: 126.96.36.199. with RefrainPublic Domain1. I wonder, have I done my best for Jesus, Who died upon the cruel tree? To think of His great sacrifice at Calv’ry! I know my Lord expects the best from me.Refrain: How many are the lost that I have lifted? How many are the chained I’ve helped to free? I wonder, have I done my best for Jesus— When He has done so much for me?2. The hours that I have wasted are so many, The hours I’ve spent for Christ so few. Because of all my lack of love for Jesus, I wonder if His heart is breaking too.3. I wonder, have I cared enough for others, Or have I let them die alone? I might have helped a wand’rer to the Savior; The seed of precious Life I might have sown.4. No longer will I stay within the valley— I’ll climb to mountain heights above. The world is dying now for want of someone To tell them of the Savior’s matchless love.
