THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO YOU
There's a sweet old story translated for man, But writ in the long, long ago,
The gospel according to Mark, Luke, and John, Of Christ and His mission below.
Men read and admire the gospel of Christ, With its love so unfailing and true;
But what do they say and what do they think Of the "gospel according to you" ?
Tis a wonderful story, that gospel of love, As it shines in the Christ-life divine:
And O that its truth might be told once again In the story of your life and mine !
Unselfishness mirrors in every scene; Love blossoms on every sod; And back
from its vision the heart comes to tell The wonderful goodness of God.
You are writing each day a letter to men; Take care that the writing is true.
Tis the only gospel that some men will read- That "gospel according to you."
