Friday Slowdown

I thought that the lyrics to this hymn certainly fit our study this week of "little things."

It is called "Little is Much When God is in It" and was written in 1924 by Kittie Suffield.

In the harvest field now ripened
There’s a work for all to do;
Hark! the voice of God is calling
To the harvest calling you.

Little is much when God is in it!
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There’s a crown—and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus’ Name.

In the mad rush of the broad way,
In the hurry and the strife,
Tell of Jesus’ love and mercy,
Give to them the Word of Life.

Does the place you’re called to labor
Seem too small and little known?
It is great if God is in it,
And He’ll not forget His own.

Are you laid aside from service,
Body worn from toil and care?
You can still be in the battle,
In the sacred place of prayer.

When the conflict here is ended
And our race on earth is run,
He will say, if we are faithful,
“Welcome home, My child—well done!”

I very much want to hear, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant!" When I reach heaven. How exciting to think that even the smallest of things done for Jesus is MUCH!!

I don't know that hymn, but it feels like a Brethren hymn that my parents used to sing (they were in the Plymouth Brethren). Terrific words. Thanks x
