Anywhere, everywhere

Representative Text

1 In the work we have to do,
We may render service true,
Anywhere, ev'rywhere;
We can sow the seeds of love,
Spread the sunshine from above,
Anywhere, ev'rywhere.

In the name of our blessed Saviour King,
Pressing on, while our glad hosannas ring;
He will listen to our prayer,
Give us strength to do and dare,
And the gospel banner bear Anywhere. [Chorus]

2 There's a need for willing hands,
Hearts that heed the King's commands,
Anywhere, ev'rywhere;
Need for kindly words and deeds,
Holy lives as well as creeds,
Anywhere, ev'rywhere. [Chorus]

3 We will labor not alone,
Close to him who guides his own,
Anywhere ev'rywhere;
In a fellowship so sweet,
Toils and triumphs we will meet,
Anywhere, ev'rywhere. [Chorus]
