Be Humble

Full Text

1 Be honest, Jesus watches,
Each act and tho't he sees.
Be useful, always ready
To help and cheer and please.

Chorus:
Oh, try to be like Jesus,
The meek and lowly One.
Be humble; Christ was humble,
God's well beloved Son.

2 Be meek, tho' tempted daily
To anger, pride and hate.
Be busy; time is passing,
It soon may be too late. [Chorus]

3 Be loving, oh, be loving,
For this is like your Lord.
Be earnest in endeavor,
And win the blest reward. [Chorus]
