From the early morning light

Representative Text

1 From the early morning light,
To the silent hour of night,
O remember there is work for all.
With the precious balm of rest,
To the weary hearts oppressed,
let us hasten at the Masters call.

Work to do, work to do,
And a song of joy we’ll sing;
From the early morning light
To the silent hour of night,
While we labor for the Lord our King!

2 There is work that we must do,
And our strength He will renew
If we trust Him while the time shall last;
He will keep us in His care,
He will hear and answer pray’r,
And defend us till our days are past. [Chorus]

3 There is work that we must do,
And a path we must pursue;
There’s a promise in His Word laid down,
Of a resting by and by,
And a mansion in the sky,
Where the faithful shall receive their crown. [Chorus]
