No. 68 Do the Duty Lying Nearest

Verse 1:
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.

Verse 2:
Opportunities will greet thee,
Only watch with greatest care;
Something brave to do, it may be,
Or, perhaps, something to bear.

Verse 3:
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.

Carrie Wright/F.W. Tidball
