Here’s a terrific worship song from Keith and Kristyn Getty that beautifully captures the value and purpose of our work – however ordinary and mundane it might be. (Karaoke version)
Before You I kneel, my Master and Maker,
To offer the work of my hands.
For this is the day You?ve given Your servant;?
I will rejoice and be glad?
For the strength I have to live and breathe,?
For each skill Your grace has given me,?
For the needs and opportunities?
That will glorify Your great name.?
Before You I kneel and ask for Your goodness?
To cover the work of my hands.?
For patience and peace to shape all my labor,?
Your grace for thorns in my path.?
Flow within me like a living stream,?
Wear away the stones of pride and greed?
?Til Your ways are dwelling deep in me?
And a harvest of life is grown.?
Before You we kneel, our Master and Maker;?
Establish the work of our hands.?
And order our steps to seek first Your kingdom?
In every small and great task.?
May we live the gospel of Your grace,?
Serve Your purpose in our fleeting days,?
Then our lives will bring eternal praise?
And all glory to Your great name.
