Representative Text

1 Lifetime is working time, spend no idle days;
Jesus is calling thee on the harvest ways;
Working with a willing hand, sing a song of praise;
Work, ever work for Jesus!

Chorus:
Swiftly the hours of labor fly,
Freighted with love let each pass by!
There is joy in labor for the struggling neighbor,
Work, ever work for Jesus!

2 Lifetime is working time, learn where duty lies;
Grasp ev'ry passing day as a precious prize;
Glad to help the sorrowing, glad to sympathize;
Work, ever work for Jesus! [Chorus]

3 Lifetime is working time, do thy honest part;
Tho' in discouragements, bear a cheerful heart;
Trusting Jesus as thy friend, ne'er from Him depart.
Work, ever work for Jesus! [Chorus]
