Representative Text

1 In the paths of life from day to day,
You can make fair blossoms spring,
By the kindly deeds along the way,
In the service of the King.

Refrain:
Just a word, a word of happiness and cheer,
Just a word, glad hope to bring;
O the kindly deeds that we may do while here,
In the service of the King.

2 We can lift a weary load of care,
By a cheerful kindly word;
And the joy divine with others share,
As we point them to our Lord. [Refrain]

3 We can brighten skies so dull and drear,
We can whisper hope divine;
We can lead for Christ, the Helper near,
As for Him we seek to shine. [Refrain]
