Be Humble

Representative Text

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

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]
