god, make my life a little hymn


"God make my life a little light Within the world to glow;  
A little flame that burneth bright, Wherever I may go.
God make my life a little flower, That giveth joy to all,
 Content to bloom in native bower Although its place be small.
 God make my life a little song That comforteth the sad;
 That helpeth others to be strong, And makes the singer glad.
 God make my life a little staff, Whereon the weak may rest,
 That so what health and strength I have May serve my neighbours best.
 God make my life a little hymn Of tenderness and praise;
 Of faith—that never waxeth dim, In all His wondrous ways."
 Matilda Edwards

  2. By far one of my favorite things about you is how often you reference old hymns. I grew up on these too, so the reminders thrill my heart so much!
