Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Representative Text

1 Who will toil for Jesus?
Who will work and pray?
Who will lead the sin sick
To the Christ today?
Who will turn some wand’rer
From the paths of sin,
Striving for the Master
Precious souls to win?

Who will work for Jesus,
Seeking souls to save?
Who will fight His battles
Like a soldier brave?
Who will gladly labor
In His vineyard wide?
Who will love His service
More that all beside?

2 Who will fight for Jesus
In His holy cause?
Who will rear His standard
And obey His laws?
Who will, like the valiant,
Stand against the wrong,
Loyal, bold and fearless,
Steadfast, brave and strong? [Refrain]

3 Who will live for Jesus?
Who will please the Lord?
Who will trust His promise
And revere His word?
Who will prove His fealty
To the heav’nly King?
Who will seek His brother
To the fold to win? [Refrain]
