Give of Yourself

The Story Behind Give Of Yourself

I wrote this when I was 16.  Sweet sixteen.  Instead of partying, getting high and chasing boys, like a lot of girls my age, I was looking at the world differently.  I was really, really into listening to music, doing my homework, sewing and taking life so very seriously.  I was very sad about the state of world - starving people, people being bombed and murdered.  This is what I saw.  

This song just came to me.  It's very "simple and basic."  But, it's one of the most real things that I've ever written.

 

 

 

The World's so full of want and need
have you something you can share
a gift of love is best of all
to help the people who need your care
time and patience bestowed on us
a precious gift from Him above
Can you give any part of you
to help the people who need your love.

Can you give of yourself?
Can you give of yourself?
A little happiness can make a dream come true
When you give a little love
And you give a little care
Life is a better place to be and it’s true
That when you give, you grow
We all reap just what we sow
So give of yourself and lighten your load
Time and patience bestowed on us
A precious gift from Him above
Can you give any part of you
To help the people that need your love?
Can you give of yourself?
Can you give of yourself?
A little happiness can make a dream come true
When you give a little love
And you give a little care
Life is a better place to be and it’s true
That when you give, you grow
We all reap just what we sow
So give of yourself and lighten your load
