I’ll stay where you have put me


Restless heart, that beat against your prison bars of circumstances, yearning for a wider sphere of usefulness, ALLOW GOD TO ORDER ALL YOUR DAYS.  Patience and trust, in the dullness of the routine of life, will be the best preparation for a courageous bearing of the tug and strain of the larger opportunity which God may sometime send you.
prayer
I’LL STAY WHERE YOU’VE PUT ME; I will, dear Lord
Though I wanted so badly to go
I was eager to march with the ‘rank and file’
Yes, I wanted to lead them, You know
I planned to keep step to the music loud
To cheer when the banner unfurled
To stand in the midst of the fight straight and proud
But, I’LL STAY WHERE YOU’VE PUT ME.
I’LL STAY WHERE YOU’VE PUT ME; I’ll work, dear Lord
Though the field be narrow and small
And the ground be fallow, and the stones lie thick
And there seems to be no life at all
The field is Thine own, only give me the seed
I’ll sow it with never a fear
I’ll till the dry soil while I wait for the rain
And rejoice when the green blades appear
I’LL WORK WHERE YOU’VE PUT ME.
I’LL STAY WHERE YOU’VE PUT ME; I will, dear Lord
I’ll bear the day’s burden and heat
Always trusting Thee fully; when even has come
I’ll lay heavy sheaves at Thy feet
And then, when my earth work is ended and done
In the light of eternity’s glow
Life’s record all closed, I surely shall find
It was better to stay than to go
I’LL STAY WHERE YOU’VE PUT ME.
