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.

Chorus:
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]
