Brighten the Corner Where You Are

I saw this hymn by Ina Ogdon over at the blog Ann’s Corner and thought I’d share since it conveys a message I try to remember in life:

Brighten the Corner Where You Are

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!
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;
Brighten the corner where you are!

Just above are clouded skies that you may help to clear,
Let not narrow self your way debar;
Though into one heart alone may fall your song of cheer,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Refrain

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

Ina D. Ogdon, pub. 1913

That’s all from me today. Thanks for reading, and go ahead and take a look at Ann’s blog if you’ve got the time.
