Representative Text

1 Servant of God, awake unto thy duty;
Why will ye doubt, why falter, why delay?
Look on the fields that wave in golden beauty,
while thou art dreaming precious hours away.

Servant of God, arouse ye, awake!
Jesus is calling!
Go, labor for His sake!
Jesus is calling!
Go, labor for His sake!

2 Wide are the plains that glimm'ring lie before thee
Ripe unto harvest' thrust the sickle in!
High in the heav'ns the sun is burning o'er thee, -
Still thou art idle! Now the work begin. [Chorus]

3 Up! in the name of Him who died to save you;
Seek for the erring as He sought for you!
Always remember what in love He gave you,
And be a servant, loyal, brave, and true. [Chorus]

4 "He that endureth," is the word recorded,
Shall joy and everlasting life obtain;
To him a crown at last shall be awarded,
Thro' Chris the Lord, who was for sinners slain. [Chorus]
