The Lord's vineyard

Representative Text

1 Go work today in the vineyard of the Lord,
Work, work today, work, work today;
To those who toil he has promised a reward.
Work, work today, work today;
For a crown of life you may win and wear,
In your father’s house there are mansions fair.

Go work today, Go work today,
Go work today, Go work today.

2 Go seek the lost who have wandered from the fold,
Work, work today, work, work today;
In guilt and sin they perhaps are growing old,
Work, work today, work today;
For a word may fall or a tear may start,
That will find its way to some grateful heart. [Refrain]

3 Glad news, glad news to a lowly one proclaim,
Work, work today, work, work today;
Good will to man, through a dying Saviour’s name,
Work, work today, work today;
O, the time is short, it will soon be o’er,
And the night will come ye can work no more. [Refrain]
