Representative Text

1 Christian, work for Jesus,
Who on earth for thee
Labored, wearied, suffered,
Died upon the tree.

2 Work with lips so fervid
That thy words may prove
Thou hast brought a message
From the God of love.

3 Work with heart that burneth,
Humbly at his feet
Priceless gems to offer,
For his crown made meet.

4 Work with prayer unceasing,
Borne on faith's strong wing.
Earnestly beseeching
Trophies for the King.

5 Work while strength endureth,
Until death draw near;
Then thy Lord's sweet welcome
Thou in heaven shalt hear.
