342. Make Me a Blessing

1 Out in 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 Saviour, I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

2 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. (Refrain)

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. (Refrain)
