Representative Text

1 Work when the morning shineth,
Work when the noonday gleams,
Work when the day declineth,
Work with its latest beams.

Chorus:
Work (and) watch (and) pray,
Work for the day will soon be gone;
Work (and) watch (and) pray,
Soon will the Master come.

2 Work with a heart inspiring,
Work with a ready hand,
Work for the pure and holy,
Work for the true and grand. [Chorus]

3 Work till the summons cometh,
Join with the hosts at rest;
So shall thy days be joyful,
So shall thy nights be blest. [Chorus]
