Make Me a Blessing

Ira Bishop Wilson wrote this hymn in 1909. We sang it in church a few weeks ago, and the words came alive to me.

“Make Me A Blessing”

Out in the highways and byways of life,
Many are weary and sad;
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,
Making the sorrowing glad.

Refrain:
Make me a blessing, make me a blessing,
Out of my life may Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,
Tell of His pow’r to forgive;
Others will trust Him if only you prove
True, every moment you live.

Give as ’twas given to you in you need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed,
Unto your mission be true.

      I’m fairly new to the world of hymns, but I do like this one (and many others).

      • Kathy Lewis says :

        I love the newer music too, but so many of the hymns have such powerful, Biblical lyrics, and I find them very worshipful. Keep exploring them…I think you’ll get hooked!
