God often uses lowly things
His purpose to fulfill
Because it takes a humble heart
To carry out His will.
We are covered by God's banner
And shielded by His might
He knows the way He taketh
His way is always right.
Every task, however simple
Sets the soul that does it, free
Every deed of love and kindness
Done to man is done to thee.
Look, ye saints, within the veil
And raise your happy song
Your joys can never, never fail
For you to Christ belong.
The riches of this world are vain
That vanish in a day
But sweet the treasures of God's love
They never pass away.
So on we travel in the Master's hand
And all throughout eternity
Bound for the heavenly promised land
I'll praise Him endlessy.
