1 O workers, happy in the Lord,
Still labor on;
Our trust reposing in his word,
Still labor on;
His loving hand to lead the way,
Still labor on;
Faith growing brighter every day,
Still labor on.

Labor on till the fields of delight we shall roam,
There we’ll sing, there we’ll sing,
And shout the merry harvest-home.

2 O never doubt a Saviour’s care,
Still labor on;
While mercy hears and answers prayer,
Still labor on;
For him we cannot toil in vain,
Still labor on;
His grace will bring the summer rain,
Still labor on. [Refrain]

3 O reapers, in the field abide,
Still labor on;
Rich, golden sheaves on every side,
Still labor on;
Our hearts united, firm, and true,
Still labor on;
Till yonder pearly gates we view,
Still labor on. [Refrain]
