There Are Humble Tasks To Do
There are humble tasks to do,
But of humble workers few,
And the Lord is calling you,
Calling you into the waiting field;
The lowly walks appall,
And before them many fall,
For the need, indeed, is great for all;
Will you not yield?
Fill a humble place;
Show your strength and grace;
If in menial tasks you’re true,
Much greater things will come to you.
Follow Christ your King;
To the promise cling;
Be the duty large or small,
Give Him your all.
There are duties small and great,
And for honor many wait,
But they fail to consecrate
Soul and body, spirit, heart and mind;
So many in the night
Who most need the gospel light,
Now are groping in a sorry plight, forgotten, blind. [Refrain]
There’s a humble place to fill;
Many souls are dying still;
You can save them, if you will,
Thro’ your love and by His boundless grace;
The task is one of love!
It will reach you, test and prove,
But you’ll win a smile from Him above-
Then fill you place. [Refrain]
