We each have a part to play;
As we invite others to join;
And encourage each day.
We help to make choices;
Share about the joy;
And give a lift with kind voices.
The Designer of heaven and earth
Cares so much for His people
That He gives opportunity for new birth.
So offer words that are sentimental;
A word that encourages;
A word that is gentle.
May the meditations of our heart;
The words of our mouth;
Be pleasing as we do our part.
