The Gospel According To You


There’s a sweet old story translated for me,
But writ in the long, long ago-
The Gospel according to Mark, Luke, and John-
Of Christ and His mission below.
You are writing a gospel, a chapter each day,
By deed that you do, by words that you say.
Men read what you write, whether faithless or true,
Say, what is the gospel according to you?
Men read and admire the gospel of Christ,
With its love so unfailing and true;
But what do they say, and what do they think
Of the gospel according to you?
‘Tis a wonderful story, the gospel of love,
As it shines in the Christ-life divine,
And oh, that its truth might be told again
In the story of your life and mine!
Unselfish mirrors in every scene,
Love blossoms on every sod,
And back from its vision the heart comes to tell
The wonderful goodness of God.
You are writing each day a letter to men;
Take care that the writing is true.
‘ Tis the only gospel some men will read,
That gospel according to you.
