I Shall Not Live in Vain   Misc. Gospel

Words and music by B B McKinney


If (C) I can (C7) plant a (F) rose where thorns (Fm) have (C) been,
Dis- (G) pel the (G7) gloom and (C) let the (D) sunshine (G) in.
If I can (C) help (Am) some (E7) broken (A) life to rise (Dm) again,
(F) I (G) shall (C) not (F) li- (C) ve (D) in (G) vain.
(C) I (F) shall not (C) li- (G) ve (D) in (C) vain. (F) (C)

If I can sing a song of love and cheer,
Some song that lifts a soul from doubt and fear,
And bring them back to know that God is always near,
I shall not live in vain.
I shall not live in vain.

If I can be a light where'er I go,
A light to shine for those in sin and woe;
If I can lead some soul my living Christ to know,
I shall not live in vain.
I shall not live in vain.
