Representative Text

1 Every hour for Jesus! shall my motto be,
There is plenty of work we may do;
We may all keep busy till the Lord we see,
Till He comes for His faithful few.

Refrain:
Every hour for the Lord,
Every hour for the Lord let us spend;
Every hour for Jesus till He comes again,
When the labor of life shall end.

2 Every hour for Jesus! We must work and pray,
We should never be slothful or tire;
For the time is coming, so His Word doth say,
When our work shall be tried by fire. [Refrain]

3 Every hour for Jesus! and whate’er I do,
I must have His approval on me;
If I do heart service with the Lord in view,
He will bless me and keep me free. [Refrain]

4 Every hour for Jesus! There is work for all,
Spend your time in His service alone;
Be ye ready, waiting for His every call,
Soon He’ll say, “ ’Tis enough, come home.” [Refrain]
