Your Mission, #310


Verse 1
If you cannot on the ocean
Sail among the swiftest fleet,
Rocking on the highest billows
Laughing at the storms you meet,
You can stand among the sailors,
Anchored yet within the bay,
You can lend a hand to help them,
As they launch their boats away,
As they launch their boats away.

Verse 2
If you are too weak to journey
Up the mountain steep and high,
You can stand within the valley,
While the multitudes go by,
You can chant the happy measure
As they slowly pass along;
Tho’ they may forget the singer,
They will not forget the song,
They will not forget the song.

Verse 3
If you have not gold and silver
Ever ready to command,
If you cannot toward the needy
Reach an ever open hand,
You can visit the afflicted,
O’er the erring you can weep,
You can be a true disciple,
Sitting at the Savior’s feet,
Sitting at the Savior’s feet.

Verse 4
Do not, then, stand idle waiting
For some greater work to do;
While the fields are white to harvest
And the Master calls for you,
Go and toil in any vineyard
Do not fear to do or dare;
If you want a field of labor,
You can find it anywhere,
You can find it anywhere.
