Representative Text

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?

Refrain:
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]
