1 Be strong to toil in the vineyard wide,
And in the service of Christ abide;
A rich reward you at last shall win,
When all the sheaves shall be gathered in.
Quit you like men, be strong!
The fight may be fierce and long,
But in God’s strength we shall win at length;
Then quit you like men, be strong!
2 Be strong to take up your daily cross,
And bear for Christ any pain or loss,
Until, the burdens of life laid down,
Jesus shall give you a fadeless crown. [Refrain]
3 Be strong to battle against all sin,
The foes without and the foes within;
Conquer by faith in the cleansing blood,
Conquer the world by the help of God. [Refrain]
4 Be brave and faithful, and courage take;
Never, no, never your Lord forsake;
Fight till the conflict on earth is done;
Fight till the vict’ry thro’ Christ is won. [Refrain]
