1 There’s a work for you to do,
Lend a hand,
God is seeking help of you,
Lend a hand;
See, his harvest field is white,
We may perish in a night,
Go and reap with all your might,
Lend a hand.

Refrain:
Lend a hand,
Lend a hand,
There is work for you to do,
Lend a hand,
Lend a hand,
Lend a hand,
God is calling for workers;
Lend a hand.

2 There’s an evil world to win,
Lend a hand,
From its evil and its sin,
Lend a hand;
Christ will help you in the task,
There is nothing more to ask,
In his favor you shall bask,
Lend a hand. [Refrain]

3 There’s a crown for those who work,
Lend a hand,
There is none for those who shirk,
Lend a hand;
If we toil till set of sun,
When the glorious work is done,
We shall shine forth as the sun,
Lend a hand. [Refrain]
