Full Text

1 Work, work for Jesus,
Well and willingly,
Ever true and faithful,
Though no eye may see.

Chorus:
Work for Jesus day by day,
He is near you all the way.
Willing service he desires,
What you have, the Lord requires;
Work, work for Jesus today.

2 Work, work for Jesus,
Well and willingly;
What you have to offer,
Give with spirit free. [Chorus]

3 Work, work for Jesus,
Well and willingly;
Use whate'er he gives you,
Whatsoe'er it be. [Chorus]
