Full Text

1 Will you labor for Jesus in life’s wide field,
Where so much may be found to do?
Ev’ry task done for Him rich reward will yield,
There is glorious work for you.

Refrain:
There is glorious work for you!
There is glorious work for you!
Will you labor for Jesus in life’s wide field?
There is glorious work for you.

2 There are feet to be guided from ways of sin,
Into paths filled with peace and light;
There are souls waiting now you alone may win,
From the gloom of eternal night. [Refrain]

3 There are sheaves for the faithful to carry home
To the fair garners built above;
O be ready when Jesus shall bid you come,
Toil for Him with true faith and love. [Refrain]
