Representative Text

1. O do some good deed every day,
And speak kind words along the way;
O sing a glad and cheerful song,
For it may make some weak heart strong.

O do some good deed every day,
Then will the loving Master say:
Your deeds wrought in My name shall be
Recorded as done unto Me.

2. O help a brother bear his load
O’er life’s uphill and dreary road;
With those who need, share ev’ry day
The blessings God has sent your way. [Refrain]

3. O seek, and you will always find
The sheaves of good to reap and bind;
There’s something you can do or say
For Christ the Master’s sake each day. [Refrain]
