Lyrics

Something for Christ, some soul to win
From the downward path of woe and sin—
Some heart to cheer, some fear to quell;
Oh, may each day some blessing tell.

Refrain

Something for Christ,
Something for Christ,
Something for Christ.

Something for Christ, someone to guide
To the open fount at the Savior’s side;
With earnest zeal to tell of Him
Something each day who saves from sin.

Refrain

Something for Christ, some word of love
To point the way to Heav’n above,
That all, O Lord, may feel and see
That we each day have been with Thee.

Refrain

Something for Christ—let us begin
This day, this hour, some word for Him—
The fields are white, the laborers few.
Whate’er Thy will, Lord, help us do.
