We Will Work for Jesus

Full Text

1 We will work for Jesus, and adore the plan
That exalteth so a fallen race,
Joining with the Savior, doing what we can
To extend the wonders of His grace.

We will work for Jesus, we will work for Jesus,
We will live for Him who died for all;
We will work for Jesus, we will work for Jesus,
Till we hear the final trumpet call.

2 We will work for Jesus, all to Him we owe;
Only for His mercy we would be
Lost in sin forever; but we truly know
That His mighty love has set us free. [Refrain]

3 We will work for Jesus, we are not our own,
Jesus, we can never idle be;
Souls around us dying, purchased for Thy throne,
We will gather all we can for Thee. [Refrain]

4 We will work for Jesus, bless His holy name!
Everywhere the ripened grain we see;
Early in the morning till the day is gone,
Jesus, we will labor on for Thee. [Refrain]
