Representative Text

1 Hasten away, do not delay,
Quickly respond to the call,
Come with delight, happy and bright,
Work is awaiting us all.
In the fields where roses bloom
Or 'mid sorrow's deepest gloom
Willing workers will find room;
Hasten away, hasten away,
Hasten, O hasten away.

Chorus:
Away, away, O heed the Master's call,
Away, away, There's labor for us all,
In the fields where roses bloom,
Or 'mid sorrow's deepest gloom,
Willing workers will find room;
Hasten away, hasten away,
Hasten, O hasten away.

2 Happy are we, happy and free,
Working for Jesus each day,
He will attend, blessings will send,
Ever will hear when we pray.
In the fields where roses bloom,
Or 'mid sorrow's deepest gloom,
Willing workers will find room;
Hasten away, hasten away,
Hasten, O hasten away. [Chorus]

3 Go with a will, gladly fulfill
Ev'ry command he may send;
Thro' endless days, we will sing praise,
When all our labor shall end.
In the fields where roses bloom,
Or 'mid sorrow's deepest gloom,
Willing workers will find room;
Hasten away, hasten away,
Hasten, O hasten away. [Chorus]
