A CHILD’S HYMN
1. 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 flower,
That giveth joy to all,
Content to bloom in native bower,
Although its 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 hymn
Of tenderness and praise;
Of faith—that never waxeth dim
In all His wondrous ways.
