Shall I Work Today
Father, where shall I work today?
And my love flowed warm and free.
Then He pointed out a tiny spot
and said, "Tend that for me."
I answered quickly, "Oh no; not that!
Why, no one would ever see,
no matter how well my work was done;
not that little place for me."
And the word He spoke, it was not stern;
He answered me tenderly:
"Ah, little one, search that heart of thine.
Art thou working for them or me?
Nazareth was a little place,
and so was Galilee."
