138. Go forth, go forth for Jesus now!

1 Go forth, Go forth for Jesus now,
Be working! Be watching!
The Lord Himself will teach you how
To watch and pray.
‘Tis not for thee thy field to choose,
No work He gives must thou refuse,
Be working! Be watching! Be praying!

Refrain:
Go forth to work, to watch, to pray!
‘Tis Jesus who call thee,
The harvest waits for thee today,
Go bring in sheaves for God!

2 Go forth, Go forth to all the world!
Oh, stay not! Delay not,
But let Love’s banner be unfurl’d,
And grace be told;
O let redeeming love be sung,
A song of joy on ev’ry tongue!
Be working! Be watching! Be praying! [Refrain]

3 Go forth, Let heart and hand be strong!
Be working! Be watching!
O stay the mighty pow’r of wrong
Where’er ye may!
Equipped with love and strength divine,
The victory is surely thine,
Be working! Be watching! Be praying! [Refrain]
