OUR MAIN BUSINESS
"Our main business in life," wrote Thomas
Carlyle, is not to see what lies dimly at a
distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand."
What lies at hand, Oh Lord
What work would Thou have us do
Reveal to us Thy will, Oh Lord
Reveal to us our plans from You.
As the world revolves around us,
Like one gigantic clamours band
Let us seek Thy face, Oh Lord
And with calm assurance, stand.
No far, dim distance need we see
Only that which clearly lies at hand
To know Thy present purpose, Oh Lord
Is thy desire for every woman
Is Thy desire for every man.
