1 To you, to you the call rings out,
Go work today, today.
Oh, linger not in fear and doubt,
The Master leads the way.

Refrain:
Go work today, go work today,
To you, to you rings out the call,
Go find your place, and trust His grace,
The Lord hath need of all.

2 Go forth to sow, go forth to reap,
Whatever God’s command.
He gives to each a charge to keep,
He holds the willing hand. [Refrain]

3 In desert waste, in whitening field,
His laborers are found.
Where’er He calls, be swift to yield,
Each place is holy ground. [Refrain]

4 His faithful promise ye have heard,
Let not your faith grow dim,
He calleth you, O blessed word,
Co-laborers with Him. [Refrain]
