I first heard "Little Is Much When God Is in It" as a teen at a church camp in Beulah, Colorado, back in the 1960s. Here my family gets together and performs it. Musicians include my sister, Rebekah on piano, her daughter and my niece Susannah on vocals, my son Jubal on violin, his wife Alicia on vocals, daughter Bonny and her husband Kirk on vocals, Lyle Howard on guitar, my wife Sherry on vocals, and myself on autoharp. -- Nathan

Little Is Much When God Is in It.
Lyrics and Music: Kittie L. Suffield
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.
In the mad rush of the broad way,
In the hurry and the strife,
Tell of Jesus’ love and mercy,
Give to them the Word of Life.
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.
Are you laid aside from service,
Body worn from toil and care?
You can still be in the battle,
In the sacred place of prayer.
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!”
