What Shall It Profit Me By And Hudson


What shall it profit me by and by?
What shall it profit me then,
If, by my toil, the whole world I should gain,
Spending my strength on its treasures so vain,
Trusting not Him who for sinners was slain,
What shall it profit me then?

What shall it profit me by and by?
What shall it profit me then,
If, in a world of enjoyment and show,
On in the path of its pleasures I go,
Caring not, seeking not Jesus to know,
What shall it profit me then?

What shall it profit me by and by?
What shall it profit me then,
If I renounce all my idols to-day,
Walk with my Lord, from His side never stray,
Love Him, and serve Him, and trust Him alway,
What shall it profit me then?

Yes, it will profit me by and by!
Yes, it will profit me then,
I shall be robed in a garment of white,
Dwell in the mansions of glory and light,
Gaze on the face of my Savior so bright,
Oh, it will profit me then!
