1 Go work in my vineyard today,
Why stand ye so idle around?
The day is far gone and the night cometh on,
Why not with the lab’rers be found?
Why not today? why not today?
Work in my vineyard today:
For the day is far gone and the night cometh on,
Go work in my vineyard today.
2 Go work in my vineyard today,
Be earnest, be active, be strong;
Go forth in his might who will honor the right,
And give thee thy wages ere long. [Refrain]
3 Go work in my vineyard today,
Precious souls may be brought by thy love
From the darkness of night to his marvellous light,
To a home with the ransom’d above. [Refrain]
4 Go work in my vineyard today,
Go honor thy Master and Lord;
All thy talents improve by thy labor of love,
And heaven shall be thy reward. [Refrain]Source: Precious Hymns for Times of Refreshing and Revival #15
