WILL WE JUST LET THEM DIE?

“Missionary Gems” — A collection of short poems
Compiled from various sources — Gospel Trumpet Company
My work is in a heathen land
Where sin and shame abound;

But in a Gospel paper bright
I once this question found:

“And while we have so much of light,
Will ye just let them die?”

Quick from my heart this answer came:
“Nay, Lord, not I ! not I !”

But, musing still, again it comes,
As if ‘twould deeper pry

Into my heart this question great:
“Will ye just let them die?”

“And while we have so much of light,
Will ye just let them die?”

Or will we work with all our might
To point them to the sky?

We know we have the Gospel truth
And God is in the fight;

Oh! who will give the strength of youth
To lead them to the light?

Oh! can we lightly answer this
Or careless turn away?

Nay, Lord, but deeper in our hearts
This question put, I pray.
