Representative Text

1 Who will come in faithful consecration,
Who will hearken to the Master’s call?
Who will offer love’s delightful service,
From the morning to the evenfall?

Refrain:
Who will gladly say,
Lord, here am I today?
Take me, blessed Lord, thy wondrous grace afford;
Lead me in thy way,
Who will gladly say,
Use me, O Lord, today?
Who will gladly say,
I’ll work for thee today?
Help me, Lord, I pray.

2 Room for all among his willing labr’ers,
Ev’ry gift for him may we employ;
Sowing, reaping, gathering the harvest,
They who weep shall come again with joy. [Refrain]

3 Hasten, then, to do the Master’s bidding,
Follow where his blessed footprints lead;
Lowly tasks shall glow with heav’nly beauty,
His rich grace supplying all our need. [Refrain]

4 Come, O come, in faithful consecration,
Yield yourself his holy will to do;
Starry crowns, unfading crowns of glory,
Wait on high his servants good and true. [Refrain]
