1 Are you longing some service for others to do?
Are you longing your Savior to prove?
Would you have the world know He is living in you?
Oh, sweeten your deeds with love.

Refrain:
Love, love, sweeten your deeds with love,
Sweeten your deeds with love, love;
The world you may save with the law Jesus gave,
Then sweeten your deeds with love.

2 In each deed that you do let His story be told;
By His sunshine the shadows remove;
With His love, far more precious than silver or gold;
Oh, sweeten your deeds with love. [Refrain]

3 Those who know not His love wander far from His side—
Lead them to Him, whenever they rove,
With a bit of the love of your Savior who died—
Oh, sweeten your deeds with love. [Refrain]
