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

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]

Lyon and Healy became one of the leading music dealers in America, specializing in the production of instruments of many kinds, including harps, violins, pianos, and organs.
