We think of missions often
In our deep subconscious mind
But know not how to go about
To relieve or help mankind.
We think of missions as to places far away
Such as Pakistan or Bangladesh, Appalachia, or Rome.
When we can start our missions
For people here at home.
Yes, we should send to others
Who are far across the sea
For they are in such dire need
For food, clothes, medicine and such
And the Blessed gospel that people need so much.
And all the other things that we somehow could supply
If we loved the Lord enough, we would surely try.
Jesus said to Peter, "If you love me
My sheep, you must feed."
He likely meant the Spiritual Food
As taught in the Word of God.
But Christ also fed the multitude.
When they were tired and hungry.
He had compassion for their need.
We as Christians should be like that today
Whether it be our nearest neighbor
Or someone far away.
For he who made the sparrows
Provided also their feed,
And He is His Infinite Mercy
Will not forget us in our need.
As Christians it is our duty
To cheer and comfort the lone
To tell them all about Jesus
Who came our sins to atone.
He bore the sins of all the world
Upon the cross that day
Then He ascended to live with God,
Sent His Spirit to show us the way.
So let us give to Missions
Trust God to bless your gift.
Go ye into all the world.
That is our Great Commission
And that should be our life.
