Samuel was a little boy,
Who lived in a temple and served
His master and his friend
When his mum gave him to the Lord.
One night while sleeping on his bed.
He heard the master, Eli, call.
He ran obediently to his side.
But his master, he just frowned.
So little Samuel scratched his head.
And went back to his bed.
But the minute he laid to rest.
He heard the voice again.
Three times he heard the master call.
Three times the master said no.
But Eli finally realized.
It was the Savior’s call.
“Go back to bed my precious child.
And if you hear it again,
Call out to him, there and then,
‘Lord speak your servant hears.’ ”
He did exactly as he was told.
And answered the Lord quite bold.
The Lord replied and spoke his word.
For a vision, he had for Eli.
The vision he spoke after a while,
For Samuel was afraid.
But Eli had to know the truth.
And so the child grew bold.
“And the LORD came and called as before, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ And Samuel replied, ‘Speak, your servant is listening.’ “ 1 Samuel 3:10
God can use even a child like you! How would you respond to Gods call?
