I Shall Be Glad by Grace Noll Crowell
If I can put new hope within the heart of one who has lost hope,
If I can help a brother up Some difficult long slope that seems too steep for tired feet to go,
If I can help him climb into the light upon the hill's far crest,
I shall begrudge no time or strength that I spend, for well I know how great may be his need.
If I can help through any darkened hour, I shall be glad indeed.
For I recall how often I have been distressed, distraught, dismayed,
And hands have reached to help, and voices called that kept me unafraid.
If I can share this help that I have had, God knows I shall be glad.
