1 A life of lowly service may seem but small to thee,
And yet there’s One who whispers “’Twill prove thy love for Me!”
Obey His call to duty, whatever it may be,
For it means eternal glory and a crown.

Refrain:
“To Him that overcometh, a crown of life I’ll give,”
Eternally in heaven, that soul with Him shall live;
I’ll do the work He gives me, nor ask to lay it down,
‘Til I win eternal glory and a crown.

2 The deeds of love and kindness which bless thy fellow man,
Will prove that thou art faithful to His appointed plan;
Complete the task unfinished, some other life began,
For it means eternal glory and a crown. [Refrain]

3 Then turn from vain ambition to do some greater thing,
A life of lowly service thy gift to Christ the King;
His smile will crown thy labor, and gladness it will bring,
For it means eternal glory and a crown. [Refrain]
