Representative Text

1. Working for the Master,
In his vineyard now;
For the work he gives us
He will grace bestow.
Tho' the work be humble,
We can loyal be;
If we're always faithful,
We shall fruitage see.

Working for the Master,
Working day by day;
Loyal to his bidding,
Faithful all the way.

2. Take our hearts and efforts,
Bless them to thy praise;
That we may bless others,
Thro' life's changing ways.
Help us not to waver
In the way of love,
But when clouds shall gather,
Ever look above [Chorus]

3. While the moments linger,
Ere the day departs,
Help us call the lost ones;
Master, touch their hearts.
And when thou shalt gather
All thy people home,
May we there greet many
We have urged to come. [Chorus]

Stanton, Frederick S. (New Bedford, Massachusetts, December 20, 1857--October 1, 1915, New Bedford). Held a Bachelor of Music degree and was ordained to the Advent Christian ministry. He held pastorates at Hudson Falls, New York and Lawrence, Mass. Ill health and a final paralysis limited activity in his later years, although he supplied in various churches around New Bedford. He wrote words and music to a number of hymns, and composed the music for other Advent Christian hymn-writers. He was secretary of the Southern Massachusetts District Conference of his denomination. He contributed to the preparation of several of its hymnals, and was co-editor of The Golden Sheaf (1898), Carols of Hope (1906) and The Advent Christian Hymnal (1913).… Go to person page >
