Gladly, gladly toiling for the Master

Full Text

1 Gladly, gladly, toiling for the Master,
Go we forth with willing hands to do
Whatsoe'er to us he hath appointed,
Faithfully our mission we'll pursue.

Refrain:
Toiling for Jesus,
Joyfully we go, joyfully we go
Toiling for Jesus,
In his vineyard here below.

2 Joyful, joyful, we will tell the story
Of his love to mortals here below;
Christ, the brightness of the Father's glory,
Freely here his blessing will bestow. [Refrain]

3 Meekly, meekly, following the Master,
Walking faithfully the path he trod;
Leading wand'rers to the dear Redeemer,
Pointing sinners to the Lamb of God. [Refrain]
