Lyrics

Have you lifted a stone
From your brother’s way,
As he struggled along life’s road?
Have you lovingly touched
Some frail, toil worn hand,
Shared with someone his heavy load?

Refrain

O, the things we may do,
You and I, you and I;
O, the love we can give if we try;
Just a word or a song
As we’re passing along,
They will count in the great by and by.

Have you spoken a word
Full of hope and cheer?
Have you walked with a slower pace,
Till the weary of heart
Who were stumbling on,
Took new courage to run the race?

Refrain

Have you held up your light
Thro’ the shadows dark,
So that somebody else might see?
Have you lived with the Christ
Thro’ the long, long day,
Gaining many a victory?
