1 O Christian toil not for thyself,
Go share the life God gives,
Who lifts the load his brother bears
He only, truly lives.
Then let us seek to bless the world,
Our gifts and graces share,
Till deserts blossom like the rose,
And love smiles ev’rywhere.
2 The rose its fragrance abroad,
The spring the brook supplies,
The soul that does not others bless
Declines, decays and dies. [Refrain]
3 As God himself his love outpours,
And scatters mercies wide,
So man if he would Godlike be,
Must help on ev’ry side. [Refrain]
4 The world is full of wants and woes,
And hearts are often sad;
The music that God gives to us
Is ours to make men glad. [Refrain]Source: Songs for All #71
