Representative Text

1 Always do your very best for Christ the Savior King,
Make your service true, glad his work to do;
Willing hands and loyal heart with full allegiance bring,
Think how much he did for you.

Refrain:
Always do your very best!
Always do your very best!
Busy day and night,
Work with all your might;
Always do your best for Jesus!

2 Break away from ev’rything to heed the Master’s call,
Though the day be long, fill it full of song;
Just a little while to toil for him, the Lord of all,
Hasten forth to conquer wrong. [Refrain]

3 Always do your very best for One whose love you know,
Like a hero stand, make your service grand;
Weary not, but honor him in ev’ry place you go,
Life and soul at his command. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
