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