Representative Text

1 Not for self, O blessed Saviour,
Would I live this life of mine,
I would give it to Thee, Master,
Serving, Lord, Thy cause divine.

Small indeed may be my service,
Weak and wayward I may prove,
Yet, O Master, I’ll keep serving,
Hoping, trusting, in Thy love.

2 Happiness I know, dear Saviour,
Comes alone thro’ serving Thee,
Therefore, on some sad heart’s pathway,
May some sunlight shine thro’ me. [Refrain]

3 May some soul renew its courage,
By a cheering word of mine,
Bringing it from sorrow’s darkness
To a heav’nly light divine. [Refrain]
