1 Let me go, let me go to the vineyard of God,
Let me go and with Jesus abide;
Ever valiant and strong in the work of the Lord,
Working close by His crucified side.
Let me go, tell the world I am dead to its charms,
For my friends ring a final death knell;
From the vineyard of God I have heard the alarm,
Work to do: dearest idols, farewell.

2 Let me go, let me go to the lowest of earth,
Sinking down in their filth and their sin;
For my Savior has shown me their infinite worth,
And I hasten my work to begin.
What tho’ death I see oft!
What tho’ perils are mine!
I am strong in the might of the Lord;
And I hasten to join in the work so divine,
And I conquer by His mighty word.

3 Let me go, let me go till the sheaves are all bound,
And are meet for the garner on high;
Till the Lord of the harvest shall say, “I have found
All the sheaves for the sweet by and by.”
Let me go, let me go,
Till I’ve crossed the cold stream,
And have joined the redeemed on the shore;
Till I sweep thro’ the gate like the lightning’s bright gleam,
And I gaze on my Christ evermore.
