And so, by the labours of all, the circle of the wall was complete, and Jerusalem was protected. The church of God in our day needs building up, and it is the duty of each believer to take his share in the work. What can we do? Let the question go round among us, What can I do? Do I really love the Lord, and trust in his Son Jesus? If so, what shall I do, my Saviour to praise?
As labourers on thy church’s walls,
Lord, give us grace to be
Content to lift the heaviest load
Through life’s long day for Thee.
Of wages we will ask no more,
When thou shalt call us home,
Than to have shared that travail sore,
Which makes thy kingdom come.
