Representative Text

1. Brother for Christ's kingdom sighing,
Help a little, help a little;
Help to save the millions dying,
Help just a little.

Chorus:
Oh, the wrongs that we may righten!
Oh, the hearts that we may lighten!
Oh, the skies that we may brighten!
Helping just a little.

2. Is thy cup made sad by trial?
Help a little, help a little;
Sweeten it with self-denial;
Help just a little. [Chorus]

3. Though no wealth to thee is given,
Help a little, help a little;
Sacrifice is gold in heaven,
Help just a little. [Chorus]

4. Let us live for one another,
Help a little, help a little;
Help to lift each fallen brother,
Help just a little. [Chorus]

5. Tho' thy life is pressed with sorrow,
Help a little, help a little;
Bravely look t'ward Gods tomorrow,
Help just a little. [Chorus]
