1 Take the word and sow it well
In the Master’s field,
Let your days be freely spent
‘Mid its precious yield;
Gladly reap what others sow,
As you pass along,
And amid your gospel work
Lift a prayer and song.

Refrain:
Work away, work away,
Gospel workers,
Work and pray,
In the vineyard of the Master,
Work, work and pray.

2 Go where all is dark today
Gospel light to shed,
And to all that hunger now
Take the living bread;
Tell the mission of his life,
And ‘tis sweetly told,
Bring the erring and the lost
To the Master’s fold. [Refrain]

3 Take and bear the gospel hope
Over land and wave,
Tell the glory of his name,
That alone can save;
Sow and reap with ready hand,
Work in faith and love,
Gather in the many sheaves
For the Lord above. [Refrain]
