1 There is work to do for Jesus,
Yes, a glorious work to do,
For a harvest fully ripened,
Rich and golden, lies in view;
With a prayer to God our Father,
Let us all the work pursue,
For our risen Lord is calling,
And the harvesters are few.
Yes, there’s work to do for Jesus,
And the harvest is in view,
There’s a great work everywhere to do;
There is work to do for Jesus,
And the harvesters are few,
There’s enough fork for all to do.
2 There is work to do for Jesus;
And we hear the Saviour say,
“Why art standing here so idle,
At the noontide on the way?
Even now I will accept thee,
With the rest thy wages pay;
Go and labor in my vineyard,
Till the closing of the day.” [Refrain]
3 Yes, there’s work to do for Jesus;
Who will answer to the call?
See! the vintage is abundant,
There is work to do for all;
God commands that we should labor,
Tho’ the task our hearts appall;
For He claimeth our life service,
Till the shades of death shall fall. [Refrain]
