Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, that the name of God and His doctrine be not blasphemed. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort. (1 Tim. 6:1‑2)
And not alone would I walk there, For others I would lift in prayer; That through this day the selfish masks May all be stripped from daily tasks; That fellow-workers, too, may see And want to walk this day with Thee.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. (Psa. 23:4‑5)
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (Psa. 30:5)
When He leads through some valley of trouble, His omnipotent hand we trace; For the trials and sorrows He sends us Are part of His lessons in grace.
So we’ll follow wherever He leadeth, Let the path be dreary or bright; For we’ve proved that our God can give comfort; Our God can give songs in the night.
