1 There’s a work that’s waiting for your hands to do,
Joy to other lives you can bring;
Keep a loyal heart, bravely do your part,
Always in the name of the King!

Refrain:
To run the errands He requires of you,
To send the message He has given you,
Be ever ready, watchful, brave and true,
Always in the name of the King.

2 There’s a work that’s waiting for your lips to speak,
Help to other hearts you can bring;
Tell the word of cheer, help the one that’s near,
Always in the name of the King! [Refrain]

3 There’s a work that’s waiting for your feet to tread,
Help to other souls you can bring;
On His errands speed, go to those in need,
Always in the name of the King! [Refrain]
