A rebellious person may not listen to the word of God, but we preach it regardless of the reaction.

     1 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. 2 And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. 3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day. 4 For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD. 5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.(KJV)

1. Hark! the voice of Jesus crying, 
“Who will go and work today? 
Fields are white and harvests waiting, 
Who will bear the sheave away?” 
Loud and long the Master calleth, 
Rich reward He offers thee; 
Who will answer, gladly saying, 
“Here am I, send me, send me”? 

2. If you cannot speak like angels, 
If you cannot preach like Paul, 
You can tell the love of Jesus, 
You can say He died for all. 
If you cannot rouse the wicked 
With the Judgement’s dread alarms, 
You can lead the little children 
To the Savior’s waiting arms. 

3 If you cannot be a watchman, 
Standing high on Zion’s wall, 
Pointing out the path to heaven, 
Offering life and peace to all, 
With your prayers and with your bounties 
You can do what God demands; 
You can be like faithful Aaron, 
Holding up the prophet’s hands. 

4. Let none hear you idly saying, 
“There is nothing I can do,” 
While the souls of men are dying 
And the Master calls for you. 
Take the task He gives you gladly, 
Let His work your pleasure be; 
Answer quickly when He calleth, 
“Here am I, send me, send me!”
