What if we quit? Who will bear the Good News,
Spread the glad message if we should refuse?
We must go forth: there is no other way:
Let us press on without further delay.
What if we quit when the way becomes hard?
Rugged and rough was the path of our Lord.
Bitter the cup which He drank for our sake:
He did not quit, nor His mission forsake.
What if we quit? Have we counted the cost?
Men in their sins are eternally lost.
Jesus has died their salvation to win:
Still they will perish and die in their sin.
What if we quit? Can we not hear the cry
Rising from souls who are fearful to die?
How can we carelessly heed not their plea?
Voices are calling to you and to me.
Lord of the Harvest, we go at Thy Word,
Spreading the gospel ’til all men have heard;
Promised Thy power to defeat every foe,
Promised Thy presence as onward we go.
by Ross Vanstone
The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Luke 10:2
