791. We Will Work for Jesus

1 We will work for Jesus, and adore the plan
That exalteth so a fallen race,
Joining with the Savior, doing what we can
To extend the wonders of His grace.

Refrain:
We will work for Jesus, we will work for Jesus,
We will live for Him who died for all;
We will work for Jesus, we will work for Jesus,
Till we hear the final trumpet call.

2 We will work for Jesus, all to Him we owe;
Only for His mercy we would be
Lost in sin forever; but we truly know
That His mighty love has set us free. [Refrain]

3 We will work for Jesus, we are not our own,
Jesus, we can never idle be;
Souls around us dying, purchased for Thy throne,
We will gather all we can for Thee. [Refrain]

4 We will work for Jesus, bless His holy name!
Everywhere the ripened grain we see;
Early in the morning till the day is gone,
Jesus, we will labor on for Thee. [Refrain]
