Representative Text

1 We will toil for Christ, our Master, with loyal hearts and true,
Working to win the world for Jesus;
We will follow in His steps, try to do as He would do,
Working to win the world for Jesus.

Refrain:
We’ll toil for the Master,
We’ll toil with our might;
This be our watchword, “God and the right,”
With a purpose firm and a spirit brave,
Working to win the world for Jesus.

2 Tho’ our hearts may weary grow, we shall never toil in vain,
Working to win the world for Jesus;
And the vict’ry will be ours if we faithful will remain,
Working to win the world for Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Until ev’ry soul is saved, we will neither pause nor rest,
Working to win the world for Jesus;
Till the Lord shall reign supreme, from the East unto the West,
Working to win the world for Jesus. [Refrain]
