1 Only a word for the Master,
Lovingly, quietly said;
Only a word! Yet the Master heard;
And some fainting hearts were fed.
2 Only a look of remonstrance,
Sorrowful, gentle and deep;
Only a look! Yet the strong man shook;
And he went alone to weep.
3 Only one cry from the sinner,
Bitterly, earnest and wild;
"Help, Lord! I die!" Rose in agony;
And the Savior sav'd His child.
4 Only an hour with the children,
Pleasantly, cheerfully giv'n;
Still seed was sown, In that hour alone,
Which would bring forth fruit for heav'n.
