Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

O to Do Something!

Full Text

1 O to do something, something!
Something, my Savior, for Thee;
To show forth the wondrous power
Of the love that could save even me.
Something to do in Thy vineyard,
Tho' simple the service may be;
Something00Thy grace can find use for,
to win other wand'rers to Thee.

Refrain:
O to do something!
Something, my Savior, for Thee;
To show forth the wondrous power
Of the love that could save even me.

2 O to do something, something!
A word--or a light--or a song,--
to speak--or to shine for the Master,
Or sing,--to win lost ones from wrong.
The cup of cold water to offer
To those who in weariness stray,--
Thy "sure word of promise" to whisper
To those whom temptations dismay. [Refrain]

3 O to do something, something!
Where others Thy likeness may see;
That self may be lost in service,
And our lives only glorify Thee.
Ready to work or to suffer,
Whichever Thy love shall command;
Secure, whether shadow or sunshine--
They are all from Thy loving hand. [Refrain]

Coronation Hymns, 1910
