Labor Not in Vain

My dishes went unwashed today,
I didn't make the bed,
I took God's hand and followed
To Sunday school instead.

O yes, we went adventuring,
My young people and I,
Explaining in the Bible,
The truths none can deny.

That my house was neglected,
That I didn't sweep the stair,
In twenty years no one on earth
Will know, or even care.

But that I've helped a girl or boy,
In Christian witness grow,
In twenty years, the whole wide world
May look and see and know.
