Full Text

1 Only a song for the Master,
Sweetly and fervently giv’n,
And One who in darkness had wandered,
Returned to the Saviour and heav’n.

Refrain:
Only a song, only a song,
Truly and tenderly giv’n,
To those who are fainting and weary,
‘Twill lead them to Jesus in heav’n.

2 Only a song for the Master,
A heart from its sorrow beguiled,
Forgot for a moment its burden,
Looked up thro’ its weeping and smiled. [Refrain]

3 Only a song for the Master,
And eyes that were closing in death,
Shone bright with a heavenly glory,
Grew fainter and fainter each breath. [Refrain]

4 Only a song for the Master,
The lips of the singer are dumb,
They’re singing a song for the Master,
Where sorrow and death can not come. [Refrain]
