Blest to be a blessing

Representative Text

1 My cup of blessing overfloweth,
God's grace is giv'n so full, so free;
To him what of'ring shall I render
For all his goodness unto me?

I am blest to be a blessing,
Sav'd to serve my Lord and King:
Given light that I might use it
Other souls to him to bring.

2 I'll go my Saviour's love confessing
To those who in the darkness hide;
For I am blest to be a blessing,
Some wand'ring soul homeward to guide. [Chorus]

3 I am the Lord's for he has bought me
With his own blood shed on the tree;
I'll tell the joy that he has taught me,
and try to love as he loves me. [Chorus]

4 I'll work today, for time is flying,
And soon must fall the shades of night;
For all around me souls are dying
That I may lead to love and light. [Chorus]
