Representative Text

1 When we work for the Lord
He doth help us each day;
He doth bless us and guide us
In his own perfect way;
Every trial grows sweet,
Every burden grows light,
And his angels will guard us
Through the night, through the night.

2 When we work for the Lord
We have nothing to fear,
For the joy of his presence
Bringeth heaven so near;
While his strong arm upholds,
And we share in his love,
We receive his protection
From above, from above.

3 When we work for the Lord
Every arm groweth strong;
And a sweet inspiration
Floweth forth in a song;
When the work here is done,
He will take us to rest,
We shall dwell in the mansions
Of the blest, of the blest.
