64. It May be the Last

1 Are you doing your duty the best you can do it,
And using your might on the task of today?
Are you working as it ‘twere the last loving service,
Ere Jesus should call you from earth-scenes away?

It may be the last! How the moments are flying!
The field and its labor will soon pass from view.
Go forth to the rescue of souls that are dying,
And do with your might what your hand finds to do.

2 Are you calling that brother to follow the Master,
And using God’s word as your strength and your light?
Are you urging as if ‘twere the last tender pleading,
And Jesus might call you from labor tonight? [Refrain]

3 Are you spending yourself in the dear Master’s vineyard,
And sowing kind words as o’er life’s path you go?
Are you walking so close to the Shepherd and Leader,
That all men around you the Saviour may know? [Refrain]
