Representative Text

1 Hast thou no part to bear
For him who bore thy shame,
Who weighs thy ev’ry care,
And calls thee by his name?

O yes, I clasp the cross,
And bear it in his sight;
I ne’er shall suffer loss,
For grace shall make it light.

2 Hast thou no life to give
For him who died for thee?
Shall self before him live,
In view of Calvary? [Refrain]

3 Hast thou no work to do
For him whose hands have wrought
A robe that’s ever new,
And raiment white hath bought? [Refrain]

4 Tho’ day with thee be brief,
Has Christ on thee no claim?
Wilt thou not bring one sheaf
To glorify his name? [Refrain]
