Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Working for the Master in his vineyard now

Tune: [Working for the Master] (Stanton)
Published in 3 hymnals

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 >
