74. Oh, to be Something

1 Oh, to be something, dear Savior, I pray,
Something of use to the world in my day;
Something, dear Savior, whatever it be,
Something, yes something of honor to Thee.

Chorus:
Oh, to be something, my Savior, do Thou
Make of me something, yes something just now;
Something, dear Savior, whatever it be,
Something, yes, something of honor to Thee.

2 Something, where spirits are burdened with sin,
Something, those spirits for heaven to win;
Something, to woo them to Calvary's cross,
Something, to give them pure gold for their dross. [Chorus]

3 Something to open the eyes of the blind,
Something to lighten the sin-darkened mind;
Something, to lead them to fountains of love,
Something, to point them to mansions above. [Chorus]

4 Something to solace eternity's fears,
Something to cheer when eternity nears;
Something, to banish death's venomous sting,
Something, to help them life's triumphs to sing. [Chorus]
