Are you doers of the word

Representative Text

1 Are you doers of the word, O my brothers?
Are you keepers of the sayings of the Lord?
All in vain are your professions, O my brothers!
If you be not doers of the word.

Chorus:
Are you doers? Are you doers?
For our hearting without doing is in vain;
Christ has told us will you heed it, O my brothers!
We must do if the blessing we would gain.

2 Are you doers of the word, O my brothers?
Are you walking in the footsteps of the Lord?
You are building on the quicksands, O my brothers!
If you be not doers of the word. [Chorus]

3 Are you doers of the word, O my brothers?
Are you keeping the commandments of the Lord?
Do not tell me of your feelings, O my brothers!
If you be not doers of the word. [Chorus]

4 Are you doers of the word, O my brothers?
Are you looking for the coming of the Lord?
All in vain your expectations, O my brothers!
If you be not doers of the word. [Chorus]
