1 Up! and work; behold, the morning
Sheds afar its golden ray;
Can you sleep, when souls are dying?
UP! and labor with the day;
God has called, and you have heard Him;
Will you slight His great command?
Will you plead your want of courage
When before His bar you stand?
2 Do you love the blessed Saviour?
Have you faith in God above?
By a life of self denial
Prove the ardor of your love;
Feed the lambs with hunger pining
In the rugged wilds of sin;
You can find them all around you,
You can help to bring them in.
3 Not the smallest seed you scatter
From your hand shall fall in vain;
You will see the cloud arising,
God will bring the promised rain;
Be content for Him to labor,
Count it gain to suffer loss;
If you wear a crown of glory,
You must win it by the cross.
