Go right on working

Representative Text

1 No room, no room for idlers,
No time, no time to waste;
There's work to do, there's work for you,
When duty calls, oh, haste.

Refrain:
Then hear the call to labor,
The King himself says, "Go."
Serve God, and serve your neighbor,
If you in grace would grow.

2 Keep on in paths of duty,
Nor linger by the way;
The Lord will guide, whate'er betide,
Then listen and obey. [Refrain]

3 Today the call is sounding,
The voice is Jesus' voice;
The work needs you, you need it, too,
Go, labor, and rejoice. [Refrain]
