Just Where He Needs Me

Inspiring words to the hymn, Just Where He Needs Me.  I’ve included a link below to a video of one of my first cornet teachers, Derek Smith.  He is playing this hymn with a Salvation Army Staff Band, one of which my dad was the principal euphonium player (New York Staff Band).

The words remind us that whatever our current situation, God goes before us and prepares the way.  We may not feel we are in the perfect location or living the life we intended for ourselves.  But God knows where we are needed in the plans He has for us.  Let’s remember that His ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts!

1 Just where He needs me, there would I be,
Working for Jesus who died for me;
Thro’ disappointment or victory,
Just where He needs me most!

Refrain:
Just where He needs me most,
Just where He needs me most;
His work to do, faithful and true,
Just where He needs me most.

2 Just where He needs me! He goes before;
Just where He needs me, till life is o’er;
Till I shall see Him on heaven’s shore,
Just where He needs me most! [Refrain]

3 Just where He needs me by day or night;
Just where He needs me—into the fight,
Or wait for orders; He leads aright,
Just where He needs me most! [Refrain]

4 Just where He needs me! He knows the way,
So would I follow my Lord today;
Where Jesus wants me, there would I stay,
Just where He needs me most! [Refrain]
