21. Work, Watch and Pray

1 Work, watch and pray, the passing hour improving,
Life’s ebbing sand perchance will soon be run;
Work, watch and pray, and may each golden moment
Tell of some good our willing hands have done.

Refrain:
Work, watch and pray, the Lord Himself commandeth;
Look unto Him from Whom all blessings flow,
And if we fail in wisdom, grace or knowledge,
Still look to Him Who doth our weakness know.

2 Work, watch and pray, and let our zeal be fervent,
We may not know the bliss for us in store;
Then labor on, while yet the sunshine lingers,
Night comes apace when we can work no more. [Refrain]

3 Work, watch and pray, and never be discouraged,
Tho’ for a while our toil may seem in vain,
Yet we shall see the little cloud arising,
God in His love will send the promised rain. [Refrain]
