Representative Text

1. Jesus commands you to go today
And lighten another’s care;
Point them to Him as the Light, the Way,
He’ll always the burden share.

Lighten a care,
Tell Him in prayer;
Jesus sends happiness everywhere,
And lightens His children’s care.

2. Jesus will give you the victor’s power,
So lighten another’s care;
Give you a blessing each coming hour
And help you the cross to bear. [Refrain]

3. Draw from the fountain of boundless grace,
And lighten another’s care;
Walk in the light of the Savior’s face,
Inherit a mansion fair [Refrain]
