Lord Help Me Encourage


Lord, help me encourage my brother today,
His heart needs the cheer I can bring;
My words may be roses beside a bleak way,
My song may show him how to sing.

Refrain:
Lord, help me encourage my brother today,
Perchance I may have but a smile;
But that may speak louder than words I might say,
And banish the gloom for awhile.

Lord, help me encourage my brother today,
There’s minor enough and to spare;
The song shall be major, I’ll teach him to play,
The song shall help banish his care.

Refrain:
Lord, help me encourage my brother today,
Lord, help me to lighten his load,
Help me to encourage my brother, I pray,
Lord, help me to brighten his road.
