There’s something about volunteers
That puts a smile on our heart;
It shows they’re willing to sacrifice
As they fulfil their given part.
They volunteer to help indeed
But their efforts do not go unnoticed;
Since God takes note of everything
When they’re driven with a pure focus.
Volunteers are not paid
But they’re truly rich within,
Because their precious time is used to assist
And it’s much joy that this will bring.
Volunteers make a sacrifice
And their mission is very special;
They’ve learnt to give back to the community
They are indeed loving vessels.
A volunteer is humble
With no monetary reward in store,
But when they extend a helping hand and heart
There’s treasure evermore.
Missionaries are volunteers
And much respect goes out to same;
Who risk their lives to share the gospel
Whilst not desiring money or fame.
Since they do not let their left hand
Know what the right is to do;
Understanding that the reward is from God
With nothing to boast of or to prove.
The gospel should be preached
And done so voluntarily,
Since freely we’ve received from God
And we should share same for free.
And any offerings should entail
To assist those in need,
With provision for their physical needs
Whilst prayer is used to intercede.
Volunteers can greatly benefit
When they have a vision in mind;
Who sacrifice their time and effort
Hoping for employment to find.
Skills and expertise will come
When our time is volunteered,
Whilst we assist those persons who have a need
It reveals a heart that is sincere.
