Teach me how to do my duty

Teach me how to do my duty

Representative Text

Teach me how to do my duty,
In the service of the Lord.
Then when time with me is over,
I'll receive the great reward.
And with Jesus Christ, my Savior,
I shall live in endless day.
Where my sorrows and my toiling
Shall be banished far away.
