Little messengers

Representative Text

1 The King needs little messengers
To serve Him ev'rywhere;
To speak for Him kind words of love,
And lighten toil and care.

The King needs little mesengers
His errands here to do;
The King needs little messengers,
I know He needs me too.

2 The message of Saviour's love
A little child may bring;
Hard hearts are often touched to hear
The song a child doth sing. [Chorus]

3 Christ used the off'ring of a lad
A multitude to feed;
And ev'ry little child can bring
Some gift the Lord doth need. [Chorus]

4 I would to serve Thee, Lord, begin,
Altho' so small and weak;
Then show me how to live for Thee,
Thy messages to speak. [Chorus]
