2  He riseth to his task,
Soon as the word is given, Nor waits, nor doth a question ask, When orders come from heaven.
3  Nothing he calls his own;
Nothing he hath to say;
His feet are shod for God alone,
And God alone obey. 4 Give us, O God, this mind,
Which waits for Thy command, And doth his highest pleasure find
In Thy great work to stand.
Rev. Thomas C. Upham, 1871
2  What is my being but for Thee,
Its sure support, its noblest end, Thine ever-smiling face to see,                  .
And serve the cause of such a friend!
3  'Tis to my Saviour I would live,
To Him who for my ransom died;
Nor could the bowers of Eden give Such bliss as blossoms at His side.
His work my hoary age shall bless, When youthful vigor is no more;
And my last hour of life confess His dying love, His saving power. '
Rev. Philip Doddridge, 1740
