Representative Text

1 Tho’ weary and discouraged,
And troubles pave the way,
Take up the little duties,
And do your best each day;
Look ever unto Jesus,
Be loyal, brave and true,
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you.

Your Saviour counts on you,
Be loyal, brave and true;
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you.

2 God gives to each a message,
Some truth the world should know,
Be pure in heart and purpose,
And live it as you go;
The Lord will be your helper,
There’s work for you to do,
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you. [Refrain]

3 In trials and temptations
You’ll find Him always nigh,
Seek not in self to glory,
But lift the Christ on high;
Look up to God’s dear heaven,
And ev’ry vow renew,
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you. [Refrain]

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.
