Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Lord, give us a mind to work, And help us to see each need. Lord, help us to care And seek You in prayer, Then reach out in word and deed.
Verse 2: Lord, give us a mind to work, Whatever our skill may be. We’ll work side by side With all You provide, And serve with humility.
Verse 3: Lord, give us a mind to work, Though challenged by enemies; We’ll build and defend, Without and within, And pray, fighting on our knees.
Verse 4: Lord, give us a mind to work, May we hear Your word with awe; Though we fall in sin, Restore us again, With joy help us keep Your law.
Verse 5: Lord, give us a mind to work, Our life spent in love for You; May we stay on guard And keep working hard, Until Your great work is through.
