Representative Text

1 Let us work and wait, let us watch and pray,
Till the battle here is o’er;
One by one we all shall be gathered home,
And we’ll rest forevermore.

We will work, we will wait,
We will always watch and pray,
We will work, we will wait,
We will watch, always watch and pray.

2 Blessed light, shine on, lead us safely thro’
Where the gentle waters flow;
Guide and keep our feet near Thee all the way
Till our pilgrimage is o’er. [Refrain]

3 Yes, we all must work, we must watch and pray,
And the battle ne’er give o’er;
By and by we’ll anchor in Thy blest home,
On that bright and shining shore. [Refrain]
