Representative Text

1 Brother, you’ve come to the Lord,
You believe in his holy word,
And its light has shone on your heart;
Oh! my brother, ne’er let it depart.

Let your light shine,
Oh, let it now shine,
Out from your heart o’er the world;
Do something, tho’ it’s little,
Out of love for your Lord.

2 Brother, your Lord lived for you
As the humblest of humble do,
And for you he willingly died,
To redeem you, and all men beside. [Chorus]

3 Brother, you may really think,
And by this from your duty shrink,
That for you there’s nothing to do,
But, my brother, that can’t be, no! no!

4 Brother, your talents may be
Neither five, nor yet two or three,
But you certainly must have one,
Then, arouse you! before that is gone. [Chorus]
