Representative Text

1 Going with Jesus to sow the good seed,
Helping provide for the world in its need,
Sweet is our toil by the side of our Lord:
Strength for the task he will daily afford.

Chorus:
Helping our Savior redeem his lost people,
Blessed the labor,
With him to redeem the world.

2 Helping to win him the love of some heart,
Helping some courage for life to impart,
Helping recover the erring and weak,
Helping the Gospel of Mercy to speak. [Chorus]

3 Bringing some cheer to the heart in distress,
Causing the burdens of life to grow less,
Giving a balm to the spirit in pain,
Helping a pilgrim fair Beulah to gain. [Chorus]
