Lyrics

What have I done, my soul, today?
May I, dear Lord, in meekness say,
What have I done today, today?
What have I done today?

Refrain

What have I done? Lead Thou the way,
My hand in Thine, teach me to say,
What have I done today, today?
What have I done today?

What have I done? So little, Lord,
It ne’er can merit Thy reward,
What have I done today, today?
What have I done today?

Refrain

What have I done? Be Thou my guide,
Help me to say while near Thy side,
What have I done today, today?
What have I done today?
