Hymn of the Week: Little Is Much When God Is in It

This hymn is a great encouragement for those times when you feel that the work you are doing for the Lord is of little consequence, or appears unsuccessful. It also encourages those who are discouraged in the work God has called them to do.

No work done for God is too small. Even the most apparently-unsuccessful work may just be the "watering" that precedes the "increase" (1 Cor. 3:6). Do not the devil or men convince you otherwise!

Kittie L. Suffield is the author of this hymn.

Little Is Much When God Is in It

In the harvest field now ripened
There’s a work for all to do;
Hark! the voice of God is calling
To the harvest calling you.


Little is much when God is in it!
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There’s a crown—and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus’ Name.

In the mad rush of the broad way,
In the hurry and the strife,
Tell of Jesus’ love and mercy,
Give to them the Word of Life.


Does the place you’re called to labor
Seem too small and little known?
It is great if God is in it,
And He’ll not forget His own.


Are you laid aside from service,
Body worn from toil and care?
You can still be in the battle,
In the sacred place of prayer.


When the conflict here is ended
And our race on earth is run,
He will say, if we are faithful,
“Welcome home, My child—well done!”
