Representative Text

1 Paying a visit to sorrow’s abode,
Helping a burdened one o’er a rough road;
This the sweet tho’t, making duty delight,
Turning the shadows of gloom into light,
Just to please Jesus,
Just to please Jesus.

2 Staying at home with the children, perchance,
Watching the sick one oft-wandering glace,
Sweeping and dusting, and tidying home,
Deeds not recorded ‘neath Fame’s painted dome,
Just to please Jesus,
Just to please Jesus.

3 Swinging the hammer if duty demands,
Plying the needle with quick willing hands,
Using the pencil, the pick, or the pen,
Serving my Lord and my own fellow men,
Just to please Jesus,
Just to please Jesus.
