Representative Text

1 Many are the deeds that I can never do,
For my strength is small, and insufficient too;
But unto the Lord I ever would be true,
And be a little helper for Jesus.

Refrain:
Just a little helper for Jesus anywhere,
Gladly doing service for Him here and there;
Patiently I will work, my duty I will not shirk,
I’m just a little helper for Jesus.

2 Speaking words of kindness to the troubled heart,
Shining for the Master till the shades depart,
With a sunny smile new courage impart,
I’m just a little helper for Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Working for the Master joyfully I go,
Wheresoe’er He sends me here on earth below,
Doing as He orders, letting others know
I’m just a little helper for Jesus. [Refrain]
