I.B. Wilson

OUT in the highways and byways of life,

Many are weary and sad;

Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,

Make the sorrowing glad.

Make me a blessing,

Make me a blessing,

Out of my life may Jesus shine;

Make me a blessing,

O Savior; I pray,

Make me a blessing to someone today.


Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,

Tell of His power to forgive;

Others will trust Him if only you prove

True, every moment you live.


Give as ’twas given to you in your need,

Love as the Master loved you;

Be to the helpless a helper indeed,

Unto your mission true.
