The Things I Do
, no. 170


1. I’m much too young to go abroadTo teach and preach the word of God,But I can show I know it’s true,Quite simply, by the things I do.
2. The people in my neighborhoodWill judge the gospel bad or goodBy how I act at work and play,And not just on the Sabbath day.
3. I’ll take my friends to church with me,Where I will act with dignity.My rev’rence and my happy faceWill tell them it’s a sacred place.
4. In ev’rything I do they’ll seeI am what I profess to be.Then when the elders find their door,they’ll say, “Come in and tell us more.”
