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


  1. Beautiful and tender post, Hannah.


  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!

  3. He's growing!! What a cutie... Love the hymn (expressed through him) xoxo
