God make my life a little light Within the world to glow; A little flame that burneth bright, Wherever I may go.2. God make my life a little flow’r That giveth joy to all, Content to bloom in native bow’r, Although the place be small.3. God make my life a little song That comforteth the sad, That helpeth others to be strong, And makes the singer glad.4. God make my life a little staff Whereon the weak may rest; That so what health and strength I have May serve my neighbors best.5. God make my life a little hymn Of tenderness and praise, Of faith, that never waxeth dim, In all His wondrous ways.
