Representative Text

1 One more day's work for Jesus,
One less of life for me!
But heav'n is nearer,
And Christ is dearer,
Than yesterday to me.
His love and light
Fill all my soul tonight.

One more day's work for Jesus,
One more day's work for Jesus,
One more day's work for Jesus,
One less of life for me!

2 One more day's work for Jesus!
How sweet the work has been,
To tell the story,
To show the glory,
When Christ's flock enter in!
How it did shine
In this poor heart of mine! Refrain

3 One more day's work for Jesus!
Oh, yes, a weary day;
But, heav'n shines clearer,
And rest comes nearer,
At each step of the way;
And, Christ in all,
Before His face I fall. Refrain

4 Oh, blessed work for Jesus!
Oh, rest, at Jesus' feet!
There toil seems pleasure,
My wants are treasure,
And pain for Him is sweet.
Lord, if I may,
I'll serve another day. Refrain
