1 Whether with the few or many
Ever working for the Lord,
Do your best and never falter,
Ever leaning on His word,
Are you in the midst of conflict,
Full of trouble and unrest?
Sorrow will not last forever,—
Trust in God and do your best.

Trust in God, and do your best,
Trust in God, and do your best,
Do your best, and never falter,
Ever leaning on His word,
Trust in God, and do your best.

2 Do your best in joy or sorrow,
Do your best by night or day,
Do your best in strength or weakness,
Heed not what the world may say;
See the Master ever working
Ever at His best was He;
Thor’ His cries and tears and bleeding,—
To the last He toiled for thee. [Refrain]

3 Sun and stars and trees and flowers,
Flowing streams and boundless sea,
Ever work to cheer and help us,—
Do their best, their service free;
Do your best thro’ Time’s thick darkness,
And the best your eyes shall see;
When the Lord and prince of workers
Comes again, He’ll welcome thee. [Refrain]
