Representative Text

1 We’re toiling in the vineyard of the Lord,
We’re trusting in the comfort of His word,
Salvation He has offered you and me;
Salvation ever full and wide and free.

Refrain:
We’re toiling, yes, we’re toiling,
Yes, we’re toiling in the service of the Lord.
We’re toiling, yes, we’re toiling,
Toiling in the service of the Lord.

2 We’re toiling on the highway of our King,
And hearts of love and gratitude we bring,
To Him whose reign on high shall never end,
Our loving Father, and our truest Friend. [Refrain]

3 Then let us toil with willing hearts and hands,
Obeying all our Heav’nly King’s commands,
Then when our toiling here on earth is o’er,
We’ll dwell with Him in glory evermore. [Refrain]
