Representative Text

1 Brightly, sweetly, toiling for the Master,
Go we forth with willing hands to do
Whatsoe’er to us He hath appointed,
Faithfully our mission to pursue.

Refrain:
Toiling for Jesus,
Joyfully we go; joyfully we go;
Toiling for Jesus,
In His vineyard here below.

2 Gladly, sweetly, we will tell the story
Of His love to mortals here below;
Christ, the brightness of the Father’s glory,
Freely here His blessing will bestow. [Refrain]

3 Meekly, meekly, toiling for the Master,
Walking faithfully the path He trod;
Leading wand’rers to the dear Redeemer,
Pointing sinners to the Lamb of God. [Refrain]
