Search Out Deserving Ones

Search Out Deserving Ones

(Matthew 10:11-15)

  1. 1. In preaching the Kingdom and teaching the truth,

    Our Lord showed us how to proceed:

    ‘Search out those deserving and ready to hear,

    Those aware of their spiritual need.

    By greeting the household and wishing it peace,

    Then it may be that peace you’ll impart.

    But when they refuse you or turn you away,

    Shake the dust from your feet and depart.’

  2. 2. All those who receive you receive him as well,

    Respond when their heart opens wide.

    Their right disposition for unending life

    Will impel them to serve at your side.

    And never be anxious about what to say,

    For Jehovah will help you to speak.

    Your answer when gracious and seasoned with salt

    Will appeal to the humble and meek.
