Representative Text

1 When the heart grows faint,
And the soul is weary,
Brother, work, watch, pray;
When the nights are long,
And the days are dreary,
Brother, work, watch, pray.

Refrain:
Work, watch and pray;
Brother, bid the tempter flee;
When the heart is faint
And the life seems vain,
My brother, work, watch, pray.

2 When the way seems lost,
And the staff is broken,
Brother, work, watch, pray;
And the spirit yearns
For some kindly token,
Brother, work, watch, pray. [Refrain]

3 For your work will bring
You the richest treasure,
Brother, work, watch, pray;
And your prayer’s reward
Is the sweetest pleasure,
Brother, work, watch, pray. [Refrain]
