Representative Text

1 Hear the words of courage ringing,
As to God our pledge we bring,
Through the ranks of workers singing
As they labor for the King;
See the hours are quickly fleeing,
We must now His will fulfill,
And each task of love receiving
With the triumph shout “I will.”

I will, I will,
His precious will fufill;
I will, I will,
Trusting Christ, “I will.”

2 Though the world is dark and sinful,
We’ve the promise and can win,
We are also truly mindful
Of the love that entered in;
God is seeking faithful Christians,
In whose hearts He can fulfill
Ev’ry precious word of promise,
Even this “For Thee I will.” [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the happy shout of vict’ry
That we raise, for we shall see
Satan’s kingdom crushed completely
By the King of liberty;
So we labor on for Jesus,
And His love our hearts doth thrill;
We will reap the golden harvest,
If each day we cry “I will.” [Refrain]

4 Let this song of joy and courage
Spur you on to work indeed,
It is yours, the blessed privlege
To be up and meeting need;
Ev’ry day brings doors wide open,
There are places now to fill,
With the courage of a Daniel
Face the task and say “I will.” [Refrain]
