Words by Ira B. Wilson (1880-1950), 1924Tune: SCHULER by George S. Schuler (1882-1973), 1924Key signature: C major (no sharps or flats)Meter: 10.7.10.7 with RefrainPublic Domain1. Out of the highways and byways of life, Many are weary and sad; Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife, Making the sorrowing glad.Refrain: 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.2. 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, ev’ry moment you live.3. 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.
