Who will stand for the right

Representative Text

1 There’s a work to be done,
And we must help bear the burden,
Will you do your part?
Will you do your part?
It is only begun,
And if we share in the guerdon
It is time to make the start.
We must work, work, work,
We must give, give, give,
For the need is surely great;
This our prayer should be
“Here am I, send me!”
Why, then, longer idly wait?

Chorus:
Will you do your part?
Will you do your part?
Lo, the Master now is calling;
Will you do your part?
Will you do your part?
For the night is surely falling.

2 From afar o’er the sea
Are many sad voices calling,
Will you do your part?
Will you do your part?
They are pleading with thee,
For O, the need is appalling
In the world’s great aching heart.
We must work, work, work,
We must give, give, give,
With a heart of love sincere;
‘Tis the Master’s call
Unto one and all
“Go ye,” for the night is near. [Chorus]

3 There is something for all,
No matter what be the station,
Will you do your part?
Will you do your part?
Tho’ the work seemeth small
Before the eyes of the nation,
God can bless the busy mart!
We must work, work, work,
We must give, give, give,
With a prayer for all we do,
Giving thanks and praise
To the God of grace,
That he keep us ever true. [Chorus]
