Representative Text

1 When the clouds are gath’ring round thee,
Look above and trust in God;
Be not weary of thy labor,
Tread the path thy Saviour trod;
Be not weary, Be not weary,
Toil, endure, and reap reward;
Be not weary, Be not weary,
Toil, endure, and reap reward.

2 Take thy place among the workers,
In the fields of whitening grain;
Take thy place and bear thy burden,
Thou shalt bear it not in vain;
Be not weary, Be not weary,
Thou a rich reward shalt gain;
Be not weary, Be not weary,
Thou a rich reward shalt gain.

3 Call the many that surround thee,
All the needy, faint, unfed,
From the highways and the hedges,
To the Gospel Banquet spread;
Be not weary, Be not weary,
Break for them the living bread;
Be not weary, Be not weary,
Break for them the living bread.

4 Faint not, fear not; night’s dark shadows,
One by one, shall pass away;
Look! behold the dawn of morning
Breaks with bright and cheering ray;
Be not weary, Be not weary,
God will bring the promised day,
Be not weary, Be not weary,
God will bring the promised day.
