Live for Jesus every day,
As we journey on the way,
Toiling every day and night,
Pressing on with all our might.


Brother, won’t you help us now?
While the Spirit tells you how;
Take the Bible for your guide,
And the Savior by your side.

For the night will surely come,
When your work will all be done;
As we journey thro’ the land,
Come and lend a helping hand.


Yes, your work will soon be done,
Battles fought, and victory won;
Then in bliss we all shall rest,
With the tranquil, pure and blest.
