1 Come with a joyous heart to serve
God’s earthly kingdom spreading,
Waste not the moments as they fly,
Ever His pathway treading.

Refrain:
Serve Him! Serve the Lord with gladness,
Come before His presence with a song;
For He loves the cheerful workers,
Serve with joy and pass the word along;
Praise Him! In each small endeavor
Let your daily work His glory show;
Serve Him! Praise Him!
As you onward go.

2 Serve as the martyrs served of old
Stand with a faith undying;
Though kings oppose, be steadfast, true,
Always on God relying. [Refrain]

3 Sing as the angels round the throne
Ever His word repeating,
Serve Him through life, and then with joy
Look to the happy meeting. [Refrain]
