This is the day of toil
Beneath earth’s sultry noon;
This is the day of service true,
But resting cometh soon.

Refrain

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
There remains a rest for us.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
There remains a rest for us.

Spend and be spent would we,
While lasteth time’s brief day;
No turning back in coward fear,
No lingering by the way.

Refrain

Onward we press in haste,
Upward our journey still
Ours is the path the Master trod
Thro’ good report and ill.

Refrain

The way may rougher grow,
The weariness increase;
We gird our loins and hasten on,
The end, the end is peace.

Refrain
