Representative Text

1 Do you ever stop, my friend, to think,
The while this world you’re passing thro’
Someone may be saved from ruin’s brink,
By just a little help from you?

Chorus:
Just a little help from you,
Just a little help from you;
Wondrous things the Lord may do,
By just a little help from you.

2 Just a little deed of kindness now,
It may the faith of one restore,
Who beneath some load of grief doth bow,
Is almost ready to give o’er. [Chorus]

3 Just a little word of Jesus’ love,
Some precious soul may help decide
To forsake the wrong and look above,
And let the Lord his footsteps guide. [Chorus]

4 Let us do our part, ere day is done,
And to our calling faithful be;
For the world to Christ must now be won,
By help of you, by help of me. [Chorus]
