Representative Text

1 I cannot do great things for Him,
Who did so much for me,
But I would like to show my love,
Dear Jesus, unto Thee,
Dear Jesus, unto Thee,
Dear Jesus unto Thee;
Faithful in ev’ry little thing,
O Savior, may I be.

2 There are small things in daily life,
In which I may obey,
And thus may show my love to Thee,
And always ev’ry day,
And always ev’ry day,
And always ev’ry day
There are some loving little words,
Which I for thee may say.

3 There are small crosses I may take,
Small burdens I may bear,
Small acts of faith and deeds of love,
Small sorrows I may share,
Small sorrows I may share,
Small sorrows I may share,
And little bits of work for Thee,
I may do ev’rywhere.

4 And so I ask Thee, give me grace,
My little place to fill,
That I may ever walk with Thee,
And ever do thy will,
And ever do thy will,
And ever do thy will,
And in each duty, great or small,
I may be faithful still.
