Representative Text

1. In the vineyard of the Lord,
There is work for all to do;
Will you go and work today,
With a purpose strong and true?

Heed the call, brother dear,
For workers today;
Let your eyes see the need
Of workers today.

2 Brother, sister, hear the call!
All along, your aid afford,
Let us strive to save the lost--
Strive to save by work and word. [Chorus]

3 Mark the spirit’s direful fate,
Wheresoever sin is found;
Come, and lend a helping hand,
Let the shackles be unbound. [Chorus]

4 Oh, for workers strong and brave,
Who will lift the banner high;
So the lost can see the way,
To the mansions in the sky. [Chorus]
