MY VISITING TEACHER

Month after month she came to my home
To bring me her message sublime
And I just can't tell you the good she did
That visiting teacher of mine

Her spirit so sweet and her comforting love
While she faithfully stood at her post
Made me think of the Master who long ago said'
"He is greater who serves you the most"

Sometimes I was filled with bitterness
And my teacher could never guess
When I might have failed she pointed the way
To peaceful, or owning success

Her task was simple and humble
But so gladly she answered the call
That I felt my visiting teacher
Gave the greatest service of all.
