2. If you cannot speak like angels, 
If you cannot preach like Paul, 
You can tell the love of Jesus, 
You can say He died for all. 
If you cannot rouse the wicked 
With the Judgement’s dread alarms, 
You can lead the little children 
To the Savior’s waiting arms. 

3 If you cannot be a watchman, 
Standing high on Zion’s wall, 
Pointing out the path to heaven, 
Offering life and peace to all, 
With your prayers and with your bounties 
You can do what God demands; 
You can be like faithful Aaron, 
Holding up the prophet’s hands. 

4. Let none hear you idly saying, 
“There is nothing I can do,” 
While the souls of men are dying 
And the Master calls for you. 
Take the task He gives you gladly, 
Let His work your pleasure be; 
Answer quickly when He calleth, 
“Here am I, send me, send me!”
