1 There’s work that waits a willing hand,
Though lowly be the task;
‘Tis just the work the King has planned,
And greater could we ask?
Work with a heart ever loyal,
Serve Him the Master so royal;
Strive in His service, do ye His will,
Heed ye the kingly call!
Work with a hope all abiding,
Hear now the Master’s call,
Serve Him! Serve Him!
Work for the Lord of all.
2 There’s work that waits a willing hand,
What joy to do His will!
Within the loyal ranks to stand,
His bidding to fulfill. [Refrain]
3 There’s work that waits a willing hand,
No longer then delay;
The fields the harvest Lord hath scanned,
And bids us haste away. [Refrain]
