Representative Text

1 Serve the Lord with gladness,
Wear a smiling face,
Leave a gleam of sunshine
In each dreary place.

Serve the Lord with gladness
Ev’rywhere you go,
Bring a bit of heaven
To the world below.

2 Set the joy-bells ringing
In some troubled life,
Keep the love-light beaming
‘Mid the toil and strife. [Chorus]

3 Serve the Lord with gladness
As you pass along,
Looking unto Jesus,
Life should be a song. [Chorus]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
