Representative Text

1 Our lives are not full of mighty deeds,
As His disciples of old,
Nor must we do some wondrous work
His gospel to uphold.

Some little act, or some little word,
Some little deed of love;
Filling each moment of our days,
Will make earth like heav’n above.

2 Each day that we live, we’re sowing words,
Words we can never recall,
Words that are stored in someone’s heart;
Love should run through them all. [Refrain]

3 We must us the look of sympathy,
Reach out a hand to cheer,
A cup of water in His name,
And lo, the Master’s near. [Refrain]

4 Lose then more and more, all thought of self,
Striving for Christ to win,
That by each deed and word and thought,
Some may be saved from sin. [Refrain]
