See the value of a man of God! His voice calls others to their duty, who else would have quite neglected it. If we have been niggardly to the cause of God, let Haggai’s voice sound across the centuries, and quicken us also to diligence in service and liberality in gift to the work of the Lord.
Wake thy slumbering children, wake them,
Bid them to thy harvest go;
Blessings, O our Father, make them;
Round their steps let blessings flow.
Give reviving—give refreshing—
Give the look’d-for Jubilee;
To thyself may crowds be pressing,
Bringing glory unto thee.
