96. The Loyal Call

1 A call to "loyal workers," is sounding o'er the land,
Awake! arise! the time is short, the Lord he is at hand!
Take up the cross of Jesus, on him fix heart and eyes,
Then in his grace sufficient press forward to the prize.

Chorus?
Awake! "loyal worker," to the work while you may;
In God's name to conquer! He's calling today.

2 The prize is life eternal, with Jesus crucified;
'Twas on the cross in agony for us he bled and died;
Then, workers, look to Jesus, for help to overcome,
And then in that fair morning he'll say to thee, "Well done." [Chorus]

3 Come, "workers," look around you, the Master calls today,
Whate'er thy hand shall find to do, haste, now the call obey!
Bear nobly all for Jesus, and in his strength abide,
Then blessed be the efforts to win for him a bride. [Chorus]

4 O loyal be to Jesus, in word and tho't and deed;
Then grand will the work go on, where "workers" sow the seed,
Thro' Christ our blessed Master, we vict'ry shall attain,
Then in that morn so soon to come, we'll reap the golden grain. [Chorus]
