Representative Text

1 You can be a blessing while on earth you dwell;
Clouds of grief and sadness you can help dispel;
If the love of Jesus you to others show,
You can be a blessing ev'rywhere you go.

Refrain:
You can be a blessing if you only try;
You can be a blessing as the days go by;
You can be a blessing if you only try.

2 You can be a blessing, lowly tho' your lot;
Earthly gold or glory Christ requireth not;
If you love Him truly, try His will to do,
Deeds of love and mercy He'll perform thro' you. [Refrain]

3 Joy is all in serving; giving is true gain;
Losing life for others, life we do retain;
Try to carry sunshine to the sad and lone,
Cheer another's pathway, bright will be your own. [Refrain]
