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.

Chorus:
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]
