Little is much when God is in it!

This has become one of my favorite hymns. Written in 1924, it truly describes the Christian life in a nutshell! Oh Lord how I strive to live these words for you! 

Today after church a young man (a member of a fellow adopting family currently awaiting travel dates to China for 2 boys)  handed me some money and said...this is for you guys. It was $15.00 for our adoption. It's a true picture of this song in action! Thank you Lord!

  1. 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.
    • Refrain:
      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.
  2. 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.
  3. Does the place you’re called to labor
    Seem so small and little known?
    It is great if God is in it,
    And He’ll not forget His own.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!”
