1 Hear the voice of Jesus say,
Loudly crying unto all,
In my vineyard work to-day;
Hearken to his call.

Work, then, for Jesus,
He will own and bless your labors;
Work, work, for Jesus:
Work, work to-day.

2 Why, he asks, thro' all the day,
Stand ye idle, nothing do?
Enter in without delay:
I have work for you. [Refrain]

3 Work and serve me with delight,
Full reward to you I'll give;
At the gathering shades of night
Wages you'll receive. [Refrain]

4 Thro' the long and toilsome day,
'Neath a blazing, burning sun,
Bear the heat, pursue your way
Till your task is done. [Refrain]
