You Will Find
A Joy In Service

When the blessed Saviour calls you
You must then prepare to go.
Though it be to steaming jungles
Or the Northland's ice and snow.

He will ask but what is needful,
For He knows all things to be:
When He speaks, then answer quickly
His kind, tender, "Follow Me!"

In His steps is joy forever,
By His side is peace untold;
Tho' you walk through troubled waters
His sure hand will safe-uphold.

Then, forsaking all things gladly,
That you may His bidding do,
You will find a joy in service
That will bless the world and you!

Dorothy Conant Stroud

Mark 16:15-16 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
