Full Text

1 Be earnest, my brothers, in word and in deed,
Be active in reaping and sowing the seed;
And thus in the vineyard, with Jesus to lead,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord.

Refrain:
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord;
Be earnest, be active, relying on his word,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord.

2 Be ready, my brothers, his call to obey,
In seeking the erring and showing the way;
And thus as his servants, remember, we pray,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Be zealous, my brothers, the light to extend,
And unto all nations the gospel to send;
And thus, till the harvest in glory shall end,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord. [Refrain]
