Zechariah 8:13
"And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen,
O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I wave you, and ye shall
Be a blessing:  fear not, but let your hands be strong."

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

            Chorus
            Make me a blessing, Make me a blessing,
            Out of my life (out of my life) may Jesus shine;
            Make me a blessing, O Savior I pray. (I pray Thee, my Savior)
            Make me a blessing to someone today.

          Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,
          Tell of His pow'r forgive (His pow'r to forgive);
          Others will trust Him if only you prove,
          True, ev'ry moment you live.

            Chorus
            Make me a blessing, Make me a blessing,
            Out of my life (out of my life) may Jesus shine;
            Make me a blessing, O Savior I pray. (I pray Thee, my Savior)
            Make me a blessing to someone today.

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

            Chorus
            Make me a blessing, Make me a blessing,
            Out of my life (out of my life) may Jesus shine;
            Make me a blessing, O Savior I pray. (I pray Thee, my Savior)
            Make me a blessing to someone today.
