"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."
