Representative Text

1 If with kindly deeds we freighted
Moments which to waste we give,
Sin and woe would be abated,
We should learn the way to live.
He alone knows true enjoyment,
He is happiest indeed,
Who finds time, ‘mid life’s employment,
For sweet ministry to need.

2 Hear we not a tender message
Wafted from that Eastern lake,
Where our Lord with loving presage
Spake as never mortal spake:
“As in full unstinted measure
Ye have countless gifts received,
So dispense your steward treasure,
Lest its Owner be aggrieved.”

3 Give, and unto you returning
Shall a stream of bounty flow;
They that serve are honors earning
For their Master here below;
Then let each fulfill his mission,
Urged by sympathy and love,
Till endeavor gains fruition
In the perfect rest above.
