Adam Geibel (1855–1933)


Be a wit­ness for the Mas­ter,
Wheresoe’er you go;
Ever rea­dy, cour­age stea­dy,
Love to oth­ers show.


There is room with­in the vine­yard,
There is work for you;
Every du­ty shines with beau­ty,
If to God we’re true.

Tell re­demp­tion’s pre­cious sto­ry,
Tell it o’er and o’er;
Some who need it may not heed it,
Tell it all the more.


Leave re­sults with Christ the Mas­ter,
Only do your part;
Time is fly­ing, men are dy­ing,
Strive to reach some heart.


Life is met­ed out for ser­vice,
Spend it for the Lord;
Up in Hea­ven rest is giv­en,
And a bright re­ward.
