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.

Chorus:
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]
