Representative Text

1 Little evangels for Thee, dear Savior,
Gladly we offer life’s morning hours,
Telling to others Thy grace and mercy,
Scatt’ring for Thee love’s sweet fragrant flow’rs.

Little evangels for Thee today,
Doing for others the good we may;
Guide Thou our steps in Thine own safe pathway,
Bless Thou our service, dear Lord, we pray!

2 Little evangels for Thee, dear Savior,
Strewing glad blessings along our way,
Shining for Thee in the shady places,
Showing Thy goodness to us each day. [Chorus]

3 Little evangels for Thee, dear Savior,
Faithful and loyal through all our days,
Under Thy standard we march together,
Joyfully singing a song of praise. [Chorus]
