Representative Text

1 There is work to do
That awaits for you,
There are fields for Christ to till;
Never doubt or fear,
For the Lord is near,
We can do it, if we will!

Refrain:
There is work that must be done,
There are vict’ries to be won;
There are souls to win
From the paths of sin;
We can do it, if we will!

2 There are souls to win
From the paths of sin;
Does the way grow darker still?
Never doubt or fear,
God Himself is near!
We can do it, if we will! [Refrain]

3 There’s a world to light
In the path of right,
There are souls with grace to fill;
Till the great “Well done”
Of the vict’ry won—
We can do it, if we will! [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
