There is work that we can do

Full Text

1 There is work that we can do,
While the years roll by;
For the lab'rers are but few,
While the years roll by;
Let us work and watch and pray,
Till the crowning day,
While the years are rolling by.

Chorus:
While the years are rolling by,
While the years, are rolling by
There is work that we can do,
While the years are rolling by.

2 Listen to the Master's call,
While the years roll by;
Ho! ye reapers, one and all,
While the years roll by;
Do not idly waiting stand,
Heed the Lord's command,
While the years are rolling by. [Chorus]

3 It may be your joy to win,
While the years roll by;
Someone from the path of sin,
While the years roll by;
To your trust be firm and true,
God depends on you,
While the years are rolling by. [Chorus]
