1 There is work awaiting you
That no other one can do,
Will you listen to the bells of conscience ring?
They have rung for you before,
Heed them, lest they ring no more,
For their message is an order from the King.
Hear the bells of conscience ringing as they days go by,
Wait no longer, give today your heart’s reply;
To their calling now take heed!
All around you there is need
That your hand alone is able to supply.
2 Falling softly on the ear,
Or with clanging, loud and clear,
They are telling of a work that must be done;
It may mean a sacrifice!
But, no matter what the price,
Your reward will be the greater when ‘tis won. [Refrain]
3 Scatter deeds of love and cheer,
Brush away a falling tear,
Feed the hungry, lead the blind, support the lame;
As the widow’s mite of old
Far exceeded gifts of gold,
So may yours, if given in His blessed name. [Refrain]
