Full Text

1 Oh, come and work for Jesus,
With cheerful hearts and true,
And tell the love of Jesus,
Who bled and died for you;
Oh, come and work for Jesus,
In sunshine or in rain;
The seed you sow for Jesus
Shall not be sown in vain.

2 Come, let us work for Jesus,
By faith and earnest prayer;
The little ones in Jesus
Should claim our constant care;
Come, let us work for Jesus,
For hearts are bleeding sore,
While ’neath the wings of Jesus
There’s healing evermore.

3 Come, let us work for Jesus,
We’ve many jewels rare
To gather yet for Jesus,
Who shall their luster wear;
Then let us work for Jesus
Before the sun goes down;
We’ve hearts to win for Jesus
Ere we can wear a crown.
