To Love, to Serve, to Offer All


To Love, to Serve, to Offer All

Young Women Selected Songs: A Song of the Heart

1. At twilight’s close one autumn eve

I walked a path through fallen leaves.

The rusting heard beneath my feet

Were music hushed, melodic sweet.

I’d never heard that gentle song before

 

2. Through winter’s chill the theme was there,

When spring had come so bright and fair.

A radiance was inside of me,

A song of love, a symphony:

And the theme began to grow within my heart.

 

3. It caught my heart and touched my soul,

To love, to serve, to offer all,

The world stood still, all but for me.

And  I was searching hopefully.

Then suddenly the words came whisp’ring through.

 

4. Pick up the lonely, weeping child

Embrace the friends that you’ve reviled!

Take weary aged ones by the hand!

Praise God, as just the godly can!

Praise God, as just the godly can!

Give water from the depths of heaven’s wells!

Give water from the depths of heaven’s wells!
