Full Text

1 Burdens are pressing in somebody’s life,
Thou knowest whom it may be;
Times of temptation and trials and strife,
All are permitted to see.

Refrain:
Let me be helpful in somebody’s life,
Time is now slipping away;
Here in this world where temptations are rife,
Let me help someone today.

2 Comfort is needed by many a heart
Saddened by sorrow and loss,
Not as the world gives would I have a part,
Only what comes from Thy cross. [Refrain]

3 Somebody’s needing a message of cheer,
Written or spoken by you,
If from your heart He has cast out all fear,
Someone needs that work done, too. [Refrain]

4 Many are blind to the need of Thy love,
Many are deaf to Thy call;
Open their eyes and their ears from above,
May they find Thee as their all. [Refrain]
