What good could the human heart possess
Or the hands of man produce
Without the hands and heart of God
To direct and hone their use?

If a heart is ready and willing
To reach out to another
Do we understand it is Godís design
That we are keepers of our brother

Every act performed of service
Every word of kindness spoken
Every tender touch of healing
Every tear wept for the broken

These are the Love of our Father
His heart there manifest
As He uses willing vessels
Through which weíre often blessed

So as you volunteer your time,
Your home, your voice, your hands
Remember you are the Masterís
And His are the greater plans

Give honor to Him always
Making sure that others know
You glorify the Father
Not performing for a show

Rewards on earth are heady
And pedestals are high
But these rewards are rusting
And lowly we will die

Commit your work unto the Father
Seeking treasures not of earth
For those which come from Heaven
Bear true beauty and eternal worth
