Representative Text

1 Rouse, ye saints, the world is dying,
We must work while it is day;
Sinners lost to us are crying
For the strait and narrow way.

We well work from morn till night,
By the Spirit’s power and might
Leading men unto the Light,
Blessed Light of Day!

2 Wake, ye men, let us be doing,
While the sun is in the sky;
Let us seek the weak and erring,
Precious souls that soon may die. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Saviour, help our spirits,
That we never weary be
Leading sinners to the Fountain
Ever flowing, full and free. [Refrain]
