Representative Text

1 Blessings, like sunshine, fall on our way,
Pass them on freely, O do not delay;
Loving and giving, make life worth living,
Some little kindness may cheer a sad day.

Giving and loving,
Loving and giving,
Some little kindness do ev’ry day;
Joyfully singing,
In His name bringing
Blessings to others walking your way.

2 Singing for gladness, smile as you go,
Smoothing the rough road for comrades below;
Make some heart lighter, some dark path brighter,
Lifting a burden, your goodwill to show. [Refrain]

3 Better than silver, richer than gold,
Blessings unnumbered around us unfold;
Service we render, words true and tender,
Happiness ever for others must hold. [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.
