Labour, not idleness, is the stamp of a servant of God. With the wicked, self is always their object and end, and therefore their actions are sinful in the sight of the Lord. O Lord, make thou us to work because of life within us, so that we may have life yet more abundantly.
To me, O Lord, be thou “The Way,”
To me be thou “The Truth;”
To me, my Saviour, be “The Life,”
Thou Guardian of my youth!
So shall that Way be my delight,
That Truth shall make me free;
That Life shall raise me from the dead,
And then I’ll live to thee.
