Christ has no
hands but our hands to do His work today
He has no feet but our feet to lead men in the way
He has no tongue but our tongue to tell men how He died
He has no help but our help to bring them to His side.
We are the only Bible the careless world will read,
We are the sinner’s gospel; we are the scoffer’s creed;
We are the Lord’s last message, given in word and deed;
What if the type is crooked? What if the print is blurred?
What if our hands are busy with other work than His?
What if our feet are walking where sin’s allurement is?
What if our tongue is speaking of things His lips would spurn?
How can we hope to help Him or welcome His return?

IF GOD SHOULD GO ON STRIKE
How is it that God above
Has never gone on strike
Because he was not treated fair
In things He didn't like.
If only once He'd given up,
And said, 'That's it, I'm through!
I've had enough of those on earth,
So this is what I'll do;
I'll give my orders to the sun -
'Cut off the heat supply!'
And to the moon - 'Give no more
Light, and run the ocean dry.'
Then just to make things really tough
And put the pressures on,
'Turn off the vital oxygen
Till every breath is gone!'
You know, He would be justified
If fairness was the game
For no one has been abused
Or met with more disdain
Than God, any yet He carries on
Supplying you and me
With all the favours of His grace
And everything for free.
Men say they want a better deal
And so on strike they go.
But what a deal we've given
To God to whom all things we owe.
We don't care whom we hurt
To gain the things we like.
But what a mess we'd all be in
If God should go on strike!!
I shall pass through this world but once.
Any good that I can do,
Or any kindness that I can show to any human being,
Let me do it now,
Let me not defer
Nor neglect it,
For I shall not pass this way again
I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;
I had to much to accomplish that I didn't take time to pray
Problems just tumbled around me, and heavier came each task
"Why doesn't God help me?" I wondered. He answered, "You didn't ask"
I wanted to see joy and beauty - but the day toiled on, grey and bleak;
I wondered why God didn't show me, He said, "But you didn't seek"
I tried to come into God's presence, I used all my keys at the lock,
God gently and lovingly chided: "My child, you didn't knock"
I woke up early this morning and paused before entering the day
I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.
