Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.@Matthew 25:40

Lizzie DeArmond (1847–1936)

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?

Refrain
