Representative Text

1 Just where I am, oh, let me be
A faithful witness, Lord, for Thee;
While others seek a wider sphere,
Oh, keep me faithful, Lord, just here!

2 Just where I am; the way is rough,
But Thou art near—it is enough;
They rest who lean upon Thine arm—
Oh, make me strong and keep me calm!

3 And if Thou, Lord, should point the way
To lands afar where shines no ray
Of light divine, then let me go,
To speak of Christ, and heal their woe.

4 Or if at home Thou bid me stay,
Let me be used to smooth the way
Of those who go at duty’s call,
Leaving their home, their friends, their all.

5 Just where I am, oh, let me win
Some sad, despairing soul from sin;
With heart aflame and face aglow,
Strong in Thy strength, Lord, let me go.
