429. Hark, the Voice of Jesus Calling

1 Hark! the voice of Jesus crying,
"Who will go and work today?
Fields are white, and harvests waiting,
Who will bear the sheave away?"
Loud and long the Master calleth;
Rich reward He offers thee;
Who will answer, gladly saying,
"Here am I; send me, send me"?

2 If you cannot cross the ocean,
And the heathen lands explore,
You can find the heathen nearer,
You can help them at your door:
If you cannot give your thousands,
You can give the widow's mite;
And the least you give for Jesus
Will be precious in His sight.

3 Let none hear you idly saying,
"There is nothing I can do,"
While the souls of men are dying,
And the Master calls for you:
Gladly take the task He gives you;
Let His work your pleasure be;
Answer quickly when He calleth,
"Here am I; send me, send me!"

Amen.
