Little Is Much When God Is In It Hymn Lyrics
1 In the harvest field now ripened
There’s a work for all to do;
Hark! the voice of God is calling
To the harvest calling you.
Little is much when God is in it,
Labor not for wealth or fame;
There’s a crown, and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus’ name.
2 Does the place you’re called to labor
Seem too small and little known?
It is great if God is in it,
And He’ll not forget His own. [Refrain]
3 When the conflict here is ended
And our race on earth is run,
He will say, if we are faithful,
“Welcome home, My child, well done!” [Refrain]
Little Is Much When God Is in Hymn History
Kittie Louise Jennett Suffield is the author of this beautiful hymn, “Little Is Much When God Is in It”. She wrote this hymn in 1924.
In one of Jesus Christ most famous miracles, he multiplied five barley loaves and two small fish to feed five thousand men plus women and children who were not counted.
I would not be surprised if the total number that were fed that day were in the region of at least ten thousand people.
This is simply a mind-boggling miracle. These people not only ate but also failed to finish the food available such that in the end there were twelve basketfuls of leftovers!
With this miracle God wanted to show us that nothing is impossible with him. If we have God on our side nothing is impossible.
It is a miracle that shows us that God is able to use the little we have and accomplish a lot with it.
We just need to put our trust in God and make available the little we have, and he will be able to reap a big harvest for His kingdom.
This song is a reminder of this power of God multiply the little that we have, in other words, little is much when God is in it.
