1 Only a messenger, yet ready am I
Sweetly to answer with the prompt reply,
Master, the message that thou givest me,
Gladly will I carry, blessed Lord, for thee.
Hear now the ringing call, "Shine, brightly shine,
Bearing the light of love, kindled above."
Though but a messenger, yet I am thine,
Saviour, with all my heart, I'll do my part.
2 Only a messenger, yet bravely I go,
Scattering brightness just the best I know;
Smiling and happy as the day is long,
Driving back the tear-drops with some happy song. [Chorus]
3 Only a messenger, yet honored am I
Serving the King of kings, the Lord most high;
Faithful I'll try to be until the end,
For the God of Love is my dear Lord and Friend. [Chorus]Source: Bible Study Songs: for junior societies, junior and primary Sunday schools #153c
