Thomas B. Mosley (1872–1927)


It may not be for me to know
Just where I can la­bor the best,
But in my hum­ble way I’ll try
To lift up the weak and op­pressed.


Yes, there’s a place for me, for me I know,
Where I can help, can help by deed or word,
Bringing the weak, the lost and per­ish­ing,
Into the king­dom of my bless­èd Lord.

Perhaps the words that I may speak
Will com­fort some sor­row­ing heart,
And let the bless­èd sun­shine in
Where once it was lone­ly and dark.


Today, per­chance, a pre­cious soul
Is out on the high­way of sin,
That I may clasp with friend­ly hand
And bring to the bright fold again.


Yes, yes, some­where in this wide world
A mis­sion I have to ful­fill;
Then let me la­bor where God calls,
And faith­ful­ly do His great will.
