Amid the countless blessings the Lord has given me,

The light of truth and goodness, the Holy Spirit’s peace,

I see the many sorrows that his children must endure,

So much hurt I long to heal, How can I change the world?

There are hands I cannot hold, hearts I cannot comfort,

Tears that only miracles can stay.

So let me love and serve and teach those who come within my reach,

For miracles begin that way.

 

The Savior walked in Galilee, unknown in many lands,

Yet touching every nation by the labors of his hands,

Giving light to all the world by teaching but the few,

He is my example in the work that I must do.

There are hands I cannot hold, hearts I cannot comfort,

Tears that only miracles can stay,

So let me love and serve and teach those who come within my reach,

For miracles begin that way.

 

I will bear the burden of my neighbor in his need

I will share my Savior’s love in every kindly deed,

He will magnify my efforts and I’ll understand at last

That by these small and simple things are great things brought to pass

There are hands I cannot hold, hearts I cannot comfort,

Tears that only miracles can stay,

So let me love and serve and teach those who come within my reach,

For miracles begin that way.
