Are we faithful to our Master

Representative Text

1 Are we faithful to our Master?
Are his interests our own?
Are we doing work for Jesus
In each way to us made known.

O my soul, be ever faithful!
Heart and hand be true and just!
Squander not the Master's treasure,
Nor betray his precious trust;
Ever faithful! ever faithful!
Ever true, and ever just!
Faithful with the Master's treasure,
Faithful to his precious trust.

2 Are we using well the talents,
Few or many, great or small,
Which the Master has committed
To his followers, each and all? [Chorus]

3 Do we seek the Father's glory,
And the kingdom of his Son,
By our constant, pray'rful working,
That the world from sin be won? [Chorus]
