1 Let us go forth to our labor of love,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Zealous to glean for the garners above,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Strength for the work we receive from the King,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Nobody fails who is trusting in Him,
"Always and all for Jesus."

Refrain:
Always and all for Jesus,
Sing with a glad refrain,
Always and all for Jesus,
Till our Lord comes again;
Always and all for Jesus,
Gladly we yield Thine own.
The harvest shall end,
And our Lord shall descend,
To gather His reapers home.

2 Great is the work, and the workers are few,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Do with your might what your hands find to do,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Stand not in idleness all the day long,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Strive for a part in the harvesters’ song,
"Always and all for Jesus." [Refrain]

3 Work till the summons of Ye blessèd, come,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Calls us to join in the glad harvest home,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Then with the sheaves we have gathered in love,
"Always and all for Jesus";
Safe we’ll be housed in the garners above,
"Always and all for Jesus." [Refrain]
