  4. Do Something
    Poet: Unknown


    Are you almost disgusted
    With life, little man?
    I will tell you a wonderful trick
    That will bring you contentment
    If anything can, —
    Do something for somebody, quick.

    Are you awfully tired
    With play, little girl,
    Weary, discouraged, and sick?
    I'll tell you the loveliest game in the world, —
    Do something for somebody, quick.

    Though it rains like the rain
    Of the flood, little man,
    And the clouds are forbidding and thick.
    You can make the sun shine in your soul, little man —
    Do something for somebody, quick.

    Though the skies are like brass
    Overhead, little girl.
    And the walks like a well-heated brick,
    And your earthly affairs in a terrible whirl —
    Do something for somebody, quick.



  5. Some Rules Of Life
    by James Mudge


    Have Faith in God
    What though the dark close round, the storm increase,
    Though friends depart, all earthly comforts cease;
    Hath He not said, I give my children peace?
    Believe his word.

    Complain of Naught
    To murmur, fret, repine, lament, bemoan--
    How sinful, stupid, wrong! God's on the throne,
    Does all in wisdom, ne'er forgets his own.
    Be filled with praise.

    Watch Unto Prayer
    Think much of God, 'twill save thy soul from sin;
    Without his presence let no act begin;
    Look up, keep vigil, fear not; thou shalt win.
    See him in all.

    Go Armed with Christ
    He said, "I come, O God, to do thy will."
    Shall we not, likewise, all his word fulfill,
    And find a weapon firm 'gainst every ill?
    Put on the Lord.

    Be True, Be Sweet
    Let not the conflict make thee sour or sad;
    Swerve not from battle: faithful, loyal, glad--
    The likeness of our Saviour may be had.
    Aim high, press on!
