There are a faithful few who work unseen

and unobtrusively give of their best;

Who spend their lives perfecting little things

which often pass unnoticed by the rest.

Theirs are the hands that dust the altar rails

and change the flowers and keep the linen fair.

They sweep the aisle with cheerful reverence

and polish silver with a murmured prayer.

They are the quiet ones who freely give their time

and thought and love with glad accord;

Who softly tread the byways of resolve,

and share the peace of God for their reward.
