Representative Text

1 Let us take our place in the field of grace,
To the work with ardor bending,
And the right pursue with a purpose true,
On the Saviour alone depending.
With an earnest will, pressing onward still,
Our Redeemer watching o’er us,
We shall rest ere long in the land of song,
With the faithful gone before us.

Refrain:
Let us take our place in the field of grace,
To the work with ardor bending,
And the right pursue with a purpose true,
On the Saviour alone depending.

2 With an earnest will, pressing onward still,
Let us work and never weary,
For the Lord is near, and the heart will cheer
Tho’ the sky may be sometimes dreary;
While the fields are bright, and the days are light,
And the harvest call is sounding,
Let us bear our part with a trusting heart,
And a song of joy resounding. [Refrain]

3 Let our faith abound, let us all be found
In the work of love and duty,
Till the shadows fall, and we hear the call
To a mansion of fadeless beauty;
If we work and pray in the good old way,
To the Saviour closely keeping,
When our work is done, and our crown is won,
There will be a glorious reaping. [Refrain]
