Representative Text

1 "More and better work for Jesus,:
Is the burning cry today;
More of consecrated service,
More of seeking souls astray.

Refrain:
Let us keep it on our banners,
Write it in our hearts with care,
More and better work for Jesus,
In each deed and song and prayer.

2 More and better work for Jesus,
More of lightening others’ cares,
"More of gleaning for the Master,"
More of plucking out the tares. [Refrain]

3 More and better work for Jesus,
More of sacrifice of gain;
More of binding up the wounded,
More of balm to soothe their pain. [Refrain]

4 More of kindness to the erring,
More of sympathy and love,
More of humble Christ-like living,
Will make earth like Heav’n above. [Refrain]
