Full Text

1 In the vineyard of the Master
There are tasks for all to do;
Tho’ His work needs strength and wisdom,
Little hands are useful, too.

Refrain:
Little hands are useful, too,
Little hands are useful, too,
In the vineyard of the Master
Little hands are useful, too.

2 While the older, stronger toilers
Garner in the fruitful yield,
Little hands may also gather
Precious gleanings in the field. [Refrain]

3 While for Christ we seek to labor,
Fairest flow’rs we oft may find;
Gladly He’ll accept the garlands
Loving little hands have twined. [Refrain]
