Representative Text

1 Toil on from morn till night,
Bringing lambs to the fold,
Gathering jewels bright
For your crown of gold.

Toil on, toil on while there is light,
Toil for the right,
Soon cometh night;
Toil on, toil on, win for your crown
Jewels fair and bright.

2 God loves the little child,
Try to win him from sin,
From pathways dark and wild
You may bring him in. [Refrain]

3 None are too poor for Him;
Weak or small He loves all;
Toil ere the light grows dim,
Lest some gem may fall. [Refrain]
