216 Do Not Wait Until Some Deed
(BRIGHTEN THE CORNER WHERE YOU ARE )
Ina Duley Ogdon Chas. H. Gabriel
 

1.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!
Somewhere far from harbor you may guide across the bar,
Brighten the corner where you are.
2.Just above are clouded skies that you may help to clear,
Let not narrow self your way debar,
Tho' into one heart alone may fall your song of cheer,
Brighten the corner where you are.
Refrain
3.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.
Refrain
Amen.
