Representative Text

1 In this world of care encumbered,
Be a blessing, be a blessing;
With the useful ones be numbered,
Be a blessing, be a blessing;
See the duties round you lying,
Do them, as the days are flying,
Stand not idle, never trying,
Be a blessing, be a blessing.

2 Unto oilers weak and weary,
Be a blessing, be a blessing;
Where some lot is lone and dreary,
Be a blessing, be a blessing;
Make some heavy burden lighter,
Make some gloomy pathway brighter,
Help to make life purer, whiter,
Be a blessing, be a blessing.

3 Serving Christ who died for others,
Be a blessing, be a blessing;
Counting all as sisters, brothers,
Be a blessing, be a blessing;
Needed help and comfort giving,
Make life richer for your living,
There will then be no misgiving,
Be a blessing, be a blessing.
