In God's great field of labour

All work is not the same;

He hath a service for each one

Who loves His holy name.

And you, to whom the secrets

Of all sweet sounds are known,

Rise up! for He hath called you

To a mission of your own.

And, rightly to fulfill it,

His grace can make you strong,

Who to your charge hath given

The Ministry of song.

Frances Ridley Havergal

The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
