Representative Text

1 In ev’ry town and city, some people can be found,
Who spend their time in grumbling at ev’rything around,
Especially of holiness, some curious things they say,
But if we’re true to Jesus, we’re sure to win the day.

Oh, we will work for Jesus, and persecutions bear,
And when we get to heaven there’ll be no grumblers there,
But all will be converted, and cleansed from ev’ry sin;
No other kind of people will ever enter in.

2 They grumble at the preaching, they grumble at the pray’r,
They grumble at the singing, they grumble ev’rywhere;
They grumble at the workers, and say its all display;
But if we’re true to Jesus, we’re sure to win the day. [Refrain]

3 They grumble if we speak to them, they grumble if we don’t,
They grumble if we visit them, they grumble if we won’t;
They say that in a year or two, our work will all go down,
But if we’re true to Jesus, we’ll surely wear a crown. [Refrain]

4 We know they’d never grumble, if they could understand;
The precious truth of holiness, the theme of Beulah land;
But some for lack of knowledge, will turn from us away,
And still keep up their grumbling while here on earth they stay. [Refrain]

5 Dear Jesus knows we love them, and want to do them good,
And we would love to pray with them if they would say we could,
We tell them of our Saviour, and of His precious love,
And how He died to save them, to live with Him above. [Refrain]

6 Oh, grumbler, come to Jesus, and yield to Him your will
I know you’re tired of grumbling, you surely have your fill;
Oh, come and seek the Saviour, He’ll wash you white as snow,
And take you home to heaven, where grumblers never go. [Refrain]
