Representative Text

1 Would we make our duty light,
Sing and pray, all the day;
Thus we keep the promise bright,
That happy rest will come.

Refrain:
Singing all the day,
Trusting every day,
As we journey homeward
In the narrow way.
Cheer the work with pray’r and song,
Every day, sing and pray;
Labor on, ‘twill not be long,
Happy rest will come.

2 When our labor weighs us down,
Sing and pray, all the day;
Bear the cross and win the crown,
That blessed rest will come. [Refrain]

3 Weary not, O weary not,
Sing and pray, all the day;
Joy will crown each rugged spot,
That blessed rest will come. [Refrain]

4 Looking up to God above,
Sing and pray, all the day;
Work for him with patient love,
That blessed rest will come. [Refrain]
