1 Why stand ye here idle? Work presses today,
Find something to do;
The field is enlarging, the lab’rers are few,
There always is something or other to do,
Yes, something to do.
Find something to do, something, yes, something to do.
Why stand ye here idle? work presses today,
Find something to do.
2 Don’t say you are busy, too old, or unfit,
That’s nothing to you;
He surely has some kind of calling for you,
He surely has something or other to do,
Yes, something for you. [Refrain]
3 Then up and away! in the vineyard today,
Christ waiteth for you;
His love should remind you, and gratitude speak,
The debt you are owing should press you to seek
For something to do. [Refrain]
