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.

Refrain:
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]
