Upon isles of the sea,
pearls of perseverance
gleam in patient hands.
Diamonds of devotion,
glitter in the promised land.
Service, precious as sapphires,
sweeps across vast savannahs.
extends from rivers
to mountaintops that ring
with ruby-rich melodies
of woodwinds, strings.
From ends of Earth—
San Salvador to Sydney,
Cambridge to Cape Town—
Saints sacrifice time,
talents, trades, skills,
abundance to meet each need,
treasures to build the Kingdom,
offerings to establish Zion.
Multiplied and sanctified,
they fill the common coffer
For the administration of this service not only
supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant
also by many thanksgivings unto God. (2 Cor. 9:12)
