Representative Text

1 Just a kind word for Jesus,
Speak it while yet you may;
There are so many sad ones,
Walking life’s weary way.

Something for Jesus ev’ry day,
Seed by the wayside, we can sow alway
Words for the Master, deeds of love,
Help us dear Saviour,
The promises to prove.

2 Something each day for Jesus,
O, there is much to do;
Perishing souls are longing,
For a kind friend, and true. [Chorus]

3 Just a kind deed for Jesus,
Swiftly the days go by;
Though you are weak, He’ll help you,
On His strong arm rely. [Chorus]
