Against the Tide II

Oh Lord–at work
They do not speak of Thee

Oh Lord–at work
They do not speak of Thee
But in the mocking words
Of blasphemy!
Their talk defiles
I cannot move away
Within that atmosphere
I have to stay

My precious child
This is your mission field
Those hardened hearts
Will surely yield
I cannot take you
Out from there
I place you back
With loving care

Through you I would
Their conscience wake
Through you to show
The cost at stake
Through you to win
Their souls at last
For life’s soon gone
And chances past

Your word, your smile
May be the seed
That one day makes them
See their need
I cannot take you
Out from there
I place you back
With loving care!
