785. Handle with Care

1 Look out, little woman! Look out, little man!
Do be just as careful as ever you can,
For each of you carry a treasure too rare
To risk any trifling, so “Handle with care!”

Refrain:
Look out! Look out, little woman!
Look out, little man!

2 Your soul is the treasure, and day after day
You choose which to follow: the straight or broad way;
So mind what comes nigh you, and heed where you go—
Your soul is eternal for weal or for woe. [Refrain]

3 The words of the Savior were “Come unto Me!”
So sweetly He spoke them in dear Galilee;
He wants us to serve Him with pure hearts, and true;
Then let us be careful in all that we do. [Refrain]
