Obedient Faithful Servant – v2

Stay firm, alert
ready when we are called
to bear witness, open
empty of our self, our past
obedient, faithful servant
doing the master’s will
carrying on the work
the sowing, the watering
pruning and weeding
each in their season
believing, doing, going
counting on God for the growth
faithfulness enough
all of our days
