Representative Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
