Full Text

1 Whenever you toil for the Master,
Ne’er think of the promised reward,
Go out and perform ev’ry duty,
Heartily unto the Lord.

Unto the Lord, unto the Lord,
Heartily unto the Lord;
Go forth and perform ev’ry duty
Heartily unto the Lord.

2 Whenever you join in the praises
Of him by the angels adored,
Sing out your glad song of thanksgiving,
Heartily unto the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Whenever you scatter the mercies
Which grace in your garners has stored,
The gifts of your love shall be proffered,
Heartily unto the Lord. [Refrain]

4 Whenever you find your life richer
IN love which the Lord hath outpoured,
Be sure you respond to the mercy
Heartily unto the Lord. [Refrain]
