Representative Text

1 Brother, you may work for Jesus;
God has given you a place
In some portion of his vineyard,
And will give sustaining grace.
He has bidden you to labor,
And has promised a reward
Even joy and life eternal
In the kingdom of your Lord.

2 Brother, you may pray for Jesus,
In your closet and at home,
In the village, in the city,
Or wherever you may roam;
Pray that he will send the Spirit
Into some dear sinner's heart,
And that is his soul's salvation
You may bear some humble part.

3 Brother, you may sing for Jesus;
O how precious is his love!
Praise him for his boundless blessings,
Ever coming from above;
Sing how Jesus died to save you,
How your sin and guilt he bore,
How his blood hath sealed your pardon,
Sing for Jesus evermore.

4 Brother, you may live for Jesus,
Him who died that you might live;
O, then all your ransomed powers
To his service freely give;
Thus for Jesus you may labor,
And for Jesus sing and pray;
Consecrate your life to Jesus
Love and serve him every day.
