1 I came unto Him in the morning,
When the day was fresh and fair;
"Today I will work in Thy vineyard,"
Was my heart’s outgushing prayer.
What wilt Thou have me to do, Lord?
Oh, what wilt Thou have me to do?
What wilt Thou have me to do, Lord?
Oh, what wilt Thou have me to do?

2 I came in the early morning,
As the sun began to shine,
And now, and now it is evening,
And the fruit still bends the vine.
What have I done for Thee, Lord?
Oh, what I have done for Thee?
What have I done for Thee, Lord?
Oh, what I have done for Thee?

3 I came unto Him in the seedtime
When the spring was green and new,
Saying, "I will sow with Thy servants,
For the laborers are but few."
What wilt Thou have me to do, Lord?
Oh, what wilt Thou have me to do?
What wilt Thou have me to do, Lord?
Oh, what wilt Thou have me to do?

4 I came unto Him in the seedtime,
In the time of the bursting leaves,
And now, and now it is harvest,
And where, oh where are my sheaves?
What have I done for Thee, Lord?
Oh, what have I done for Thee?
What have I done for Thee, Lord?
Oh, what have I done for Thee?
