Seek not for some far-off mission,
Undone work is close at hand;
Wait not, for some glorious vision,
Almost coming with command.
Do the duty lying nearest,
Even tho’ it humble be,
There may come some priceless blessing,
Lasting an eternity.
Opportunities will greet thee,
Only watch with greatest care;
Something brave to do, it may be,
Or, perhaps, something to bear.
All the needed help He’ll give thee,
Tho’ He work or trials send;
Only trust and love Him always,
Serving faithful to the end.
