1 While the dew of life still glistens on the flow’r,
While yet the day is bright and new,
Let us be about the labor of the hour,
Doing what there is to do.

Refrain:
Up and be doing while you may;
Labor, and hope, and watch, and pray;
Linger not, repining,
While the sun is shining,
To the harvest field away.

2 Many are discouraged—speak the word of cheer;
Some are astray—go bring them in;
Help the burden-bearer, wipe away the tear,
Precious souls for Jesus win. [Refrain]

3 Doing deeds of love to others here below,
Lending the daily helping hand;
Leading others homeward with you as you go,
Is the word of his command. [Refrain]
