Representative Text

1 You can be a blessing ev’ry day that you may live,
Cheering, helping others, by the kindness you can give;
Spreading love and sunlight ev’rywhere that you may go,
Driving out the gloom and sorrow other hearts may know.

Let your life be sunshine, white as driven snow,
Fill the world with gladness ev’rywhere you go;
You can be a blessing, full of grace, and true,
If you will let Jesus
Show His love thro’ you.

2 All about you daily there are many burdened souls,
You can greatly strengthen when the heavy tempest rolls;
Shall they struggle on in vain, without a cheering word?
Will you lend a helping hand to bring them to your Lord? [Refrain]

3 Tho’ a humble worker you may be, and very weak,
There are kind and loving words to others you may speak;
Words that, like the sunshine, flash a ray of hope and song
Into sad and weary hearts, and make them glad and strong. [Refrain]

4 We may be a blessing unto others if we try,
Jesus waits to help us, by His Spirit from on high;
Let us then go forth to live and work for Christ, our King,
Winning precious souls to Him and they His praise will sing. [Refrain]
