Hymn Make Me a Blessing



So much hurt and troubles held inside by so many.


What would it take to lift someone's spirits
. . a kind word ... a smile ... a forgiving heart?
This hymn Make me a Blessing written in 1909 by Ira Wilson, pretty much sums it up:

Out in the highways and byways of life,
Many are weary and sad;
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,
Making the sorrowing glad.

Chorus:
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 pow’r 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 be true.

May you be a blessing to someone today!

Thank you Dear sweet Abby! I'm on my way out the door, but wanted to make sure I responded with gratitude. As usual your posts fit with what's going on in my life. I'm helping someone today, and it's an answer to prayer.
