Ripples


Drop a pebble in the water: just a splash, and it is gone; 
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on, 
Spreading, spreading from the center, flowing on out to the sea. 
And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be. 


Drop a pebble in the water: in a minute you forget, 
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet, 
And those little waves a-flowing to a great big wave have grown; 
You've disturbed a mighty river just by dropping in a stone. 


Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute it is gone; 
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on. 
They keep spreading, spreading, spreading from the center as they go, 
And there is no way to stop them, once you've started them to flow. 


Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute you forget; 
But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet, 
And perhaps in some sad heart a mighty wave of tears you've stirred, 
And disturbed a life was happy ere you dropped that unkind word. 


Drop a word of cheer and kindness: just a flash and it is gone; 
But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on, 
Bearing hope and joy and comfort on each splashing, dashing wave 
Till you wouldn't believe the volume of the one kind word you gave. 


Drop a word of cheer and kindness: in a minute you forget; 
But there's gladness still a-swelling, and there's joy circling yet, 
And you've rolled a wave of comfort whose sweet music can be heard 
Over miles and miles of water just by dropping one kind word.

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
