Matthew 25:44-45 (NIV)
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
With each passing year, words to songs heard as children keep resurfacing and becoming meaningful and relevant to my own life. Life experiences cause us to understand the stories behind those songs. Songs of overcoming, rejoicing and making a difference. The lyrics to this particular song caused me to search my own heart and question if my life has meaning and question, if my life is vain.
When Christ returns, I do not want to have, “I coulda, shoulda , woulda” on my lips. It is my desire to maintain a sense of urgency so that I am able to hear the words “Well done…”
Making His praise glorious!
Lyrics to If I Can Help Somebody :
If I can cheer somebody, with a word or song,
If I can show somebody, how they’re travelling wrong,
Then my living shall not be in vain.Chorus:
My living shall not be in vain,
Then my living shall not be in vain
If I can help somebody, as I pass along,
Then my living shall not be in vain.If I can do my duty, as a good man ought,
If I can bring back beauty, to a world up wrought,
If I can spread love’s message, as the Master taught,
Then my living shall not be in vain.
