1 Let us work and pray together,
With a firm and strong endeavor;
Hearts and hands united ever
In the service of the Lord:
In His constant love abiding,
And to Him our all confiding,
With His gentle hand still guiding,
We shall conquer thro' His word.

2 In the dawn of life's fair morning,
With its smile our path adorning,
Let us heed the Master's warning:
"Time is flying; work today."
See the royal host advancing,
Arm'd with zeal, and upward glancing,
Full of hope and joy entrancing;
Let us quickly haste away.

3 Come and join the ranks before us;
Hark, their songs are floating o'er us;
Hear the glad the tuneful chorus,
How it vibrates on the air:
Home is near, and toil is ending,
Soon the mount of joy ascending,
Where the blest their harps are blending
We shall meet our lov'd ones there.
