68. Work with a Will

1 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Beautiful, smiling and bright;
Why should’st thou wait till the shadows
Herlad the coming of the night?

Refrain:
Work with a will, work with a will,
Trust in the promise and the arm of the Lord;
Work with a will, work with a will,
Faithful to labor, thou shalt reap thy reward.

2 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Wheat for the Master to gain;
What tho’ the soil may be rugged,
Thou shalt not labor in vain. [Refrain]

3 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Gladly thy duty perform;
Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
God will provide the storm. [Refrain]

4 Sow with thy face to the sunshine,
Sow till its lustre shall cease;
Then for the reaping in glory,
Then for the resting in peace. [Refrain]
