Brighten Your Corner

October 28, 2015

Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do,Do not wait to shed your light afar;

To the many duties ever near you now be true,

Brighten the corner where you are.

Refrain:

Brighten the corner where you are!

Brighten the corner where you are!

Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;

Brighten the corner where you are!

Just above are clouded skies that you may help to clear,

Let not narrow self your way debar;

Though into one heart alone may fall your song of cheer,

Brighten the corner where you are.

Here for all your talent you may surely find a need,

Here reflect the bright and Morning Star;

Even from your humble hand the Bread of Life may feed,

Brighten the corner where you are.

Ina D. Ogden published 1913 (you can listen to it  on Utube) 

This is an old happy song written over 100 years ago, but it will still lift your spirits today. The message in it is so true. Maybe you have a friend who is going through a hard time, a phone call, email or sometimes just a smile or a shoulder to cry on makes all the difference in the world to that person. You can always pray with someone. 

It is our responsibility as Christians to let our light shine brightly and reflect the Love of Jesus to a hurting world.

Matthew 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
