Representative Text

1 There is need of deeper consecration
To the work the Master bids us do;
He has called us, and the way is open,—
I am ready—are you?

I am ready, I am ready,
I am ready and I will be true;
I am ready, I am ready,
I am ready for the work—are you?

2 Not with trumpet blast or flaming banner,
That the world our work of love may view,
But with deep humility in service,—
I am ready—are you? [Refrain]

3 Mighty works are waiting for the faithful,
But, alas, the loyal ones are few
Who, renouncing self, take up the burden,—
I am ready—are you? [Refrain]
