The Faithful Servant

He spent all the night alone
On his knees, tears were sown
For this world a heart of sorrow
With the dawn a new tomorrow

All plans but Gods, set aside
Broken life, surrendered heart
No worldly fame, no wealth to gain
Sanctified and set apart

Called and sent to be a light
To the world in desperate plight
No personal honors to claim
But to uplift the Lamb that was slain.

Daily walking the ancient path
Though the way is known by few
Upward climbing, self denying
He comforts all with words of truth

Gentle Shepherd, with the Master’s heart
Merciful, Longsuffering and kind
To the seeking and suffering soul
He is a friend with love divine.

No labor on earth could be as hard
Nor any prize exceed his reward
A crown awaits the faithful servant
To be given by his Lord
